I think that's fine for Informational or Experimental, but this draft is
seeking Proposed Standard status. I'd like to see the results of some
implementation experiments at least.
I'll encourage the discussion to focus on the expected /benefit/ and the
likelihood of obtaining it. The details of the specification, without
very much what the associated label will be.
If the work is pursued in the /style/ of a standards effort, then the result
will have the technical merit th at is needed. Whether it gets that label
eventually or never becomes nicely separate matter.
Section 2 of RFC 3463 has this:
The code space defined is intended to be extensible only by standards
Which was the motivation for the status. I'll leave it to the pros how
we get there.
