It definitely sounds useful and the sort of thing that'd be exposed in
these specs. It's a little unique in that it requires the OS to comply. It
may be tricky to implement for that reason.

You could imagine the same thing being useful on a laptop too if the wifi
was still waking up from sleep. Maybe it should just be a general
