Hello Mr. Klensin,

Thanks for the input.

You are right. I'm new here. This is my first RFC proposal. If
you think my solution gonna cause problems, then I have no
problem if you reject my proposal.

Especially if you are new, please interpret my response (and
those of several others) as "we aren't convinced about your
idea" or "we think there are better alternatives", not as "your
proposal is bad and will cause problems".   I'd like to see a
lot more discussion before the latter conclusion is reached
although I'd encourage you to read the comments carefully and
see if they suggest ways to improve the proposal.  I believe
that it is very important that new ideas to which long-time
participants have initial negative reasons get careful
consideration and every reasonable chance to succeed before they
are dismissed.

Also, the IETF functions much better when document proposals are
posted as Internet Drafts.   See and and the
other headings on the latter page.   Under normal circumstances,
I'd volunteer to help you get an Internet-Draft together from
you github posting but this week is just too busy.  Perhaps
someone else can help you get started (that is a call for
volunteers, folks), otherwise please get back to me next week.

welcome to the IETF.
