Perhaps, as the result of such experimentation, we could link to an "Editor's Note" in the spec that explains how a set of pre-provisioned keys might be implemented? This is something of a half-measure, (and speaking out of ignorance) but I understand that this is sometimes done in the case of features that the spec does not include, but some implementations find necessary.
