That's a bizarre limitation.  It means that you have to own or use
servers (or two names) in order to use the feature.  That's a pretty
arbitrary limitation.

It also doesn't work, because if you do own the two names, you can use
one to freeze the other.

Like I said, you can implement your proposed solution today, without
writing any standards.  Sure, only Chrome supports it right now, but
that's a whole lot more of the web than none of it.
