Yup, that's partly why I suggested it as an optional feature. To support a 
feature that says "this is what this server can do", you would necessarily 
need to have some influence of the server config anyway, but indeed, not 
everyone can be expected to support this. I don't know how big that problem 
would be in reality though?

Yeah, it is a real problem, but nevertheless, I think it is better than 
nothing for those who can use it, and I see no obvious drawbacks for those 
that do. 

Kind regards
