Agreed.

I threw it out there as an idea that had been tempting me for years 
with no real expectation that it would work.
Given a blank call for proposals I would have and missed a huge amount 
of details the two of you pointed out, been forced to go off and write 
up this little thought experiment alone as a devils advocate style idea 
or drop it entirely.

Now its looking like the tweaked version it might actually be useful 
and I'm thinking if we end up with such a call we three (and maybe 
others) should get together and jointly create such an I-D for the 
proposal.
