If we're agreed on that, then I agree.

Mountie,

Would you like to propose a specific set of text to be included, such as:
What operations are supported
What parameters are supported
Exact references to documentation about the implementation
Known answer tests

And I'll be happy to assign an identifier, even if no one will implement :)
