My $0.02 is that a) is quite fine, and there's no reason to feel
something more complex must be invented for its own sake. Indeed,
getting the world to fix this by proper use of existing mechanisms is
hard enough, let alone adopting new mechanisms. Maybe the work to be
done is in outreach to owners of common packages, common sites, to
adjust behavior in this regard, rather than in writing new
recommendations?
