I agree we should adopt it. I've been working in bank environments where
in-house payload encryption was used everywhere so that headers could
be kept in clear for message routing / load balancing. TLS doesn't
allow this since each node can see everything in clear once decrypted.
Such a proposal makes it much simpler to design such a system and keep
it standards-compliant.

So +1 for me.

Willy
