Uhm. There's been zero uptake for stuff that requires clients to implement BOTH single-protocol AND two-protocol submission:

  if(unlikely condition)
      one implementation here
      another that works in all cases

Why bother with the first branch if the second is unavoidable? Even if you like the first one better than the second? Even if the first is simpler?
