I think that if there are strong opinions in both directions, it deserves
being still studied openly. It's just a matter of encoding, variations are
possible (I proposed one some time ago, I don't know if it would have
addressed both usages).

Why not put numbers on the table. How many different non-standard headers
Jeff needs, etc...

I'd like that we don't release a protocol which causes significant
frustration to every single participant for one reason or another.
At least the schedule is not a valid response to tell these people
that they'll get a less efficient protocol for their use case, and
I'd expect that a short time later someone would have found the
best solution, so let's seek it now!
