The next draft will have a much more layered 'look-and-feel', I
promise.

Feature bloat is always a temptation to be guarded against:  but
remember Occam:  "Do not multiply entities _beyond necessity_".  Each
of the things you identify in your list of 'not needed' is on someone
else's 'must have' list.  The WG has done its best to balance a wide
range of requirements and use cases against complexity, scale and
implementability.
