Well, I think that would be a plausible way to go, but it's not quite the 
process the TAG considered and agreed to going back as far as late 2011 
[1]. Perhaps that's where the "thrashing" in this thread is coming from: 
Jonathan first proposed a process, got agreement on that process, and is 
now following through on the steps in that process. You seem to be asking 
him now to insert and additional first step, which is the one you propose 
above.

Now, Jonathan has of course done quite a bit of writing, e.g. [2], about 
the various protocols people have proposed, including the use of 303, but 
in any case I'm not convinced it's fair to ask him to do more now.
