+1 on this. Even if not new or important, documenting the use-cases that support
the proposed changes would be very helpful. To the extent there *are* implementations
of the current draft, some of its shortcoming might even be demo-able with testcases ?

The set of use-cases that informed standard features are often poorly documented, 
if at all. While I don't expect this draft to change this, it has been partially 
implemented so they would be even more relevant. And it ought to be a lot easier 
to achieve consensus on changing a spec if there already are patterns out there 
that clearly demonstrate the shortcomings of the current solution. Apologies if 
they've been covered at various points but even a summary of the relevant input 
that was considered would be great !
