Sam hinted at that there could be a solution that vendors would be 
willing to implement.

I'll note that your negativity towards @longdesc irrespective of 
"implementation ideas" is a point which, to me, does not support Sam's 
positive outline. Unless what your are willing to implement is so 
different from the ideas, then I would have expected a "yes, but with 
another name" or "yes, but we would have to implement it differently". 
(And then a description of the method.)
