In general for API design for the web we avoid adding features unless
we have solid use cases. This because once an API has been added it's
basically impossible to remove or change. So I'd rather not have these
in the spec unless there are use cases for them. We can always add
them later if someone comes forward with use cases.

Thanks. Sorry for providing this feedback so late.
