Thanks for opening that.  I've responded there.  This is somewhat difficult, and I sympathize with the chairs' thinking here as well.  This is a neat idea and it - at least in theory - offers prospects for making server push better/viable (depending on your perspective there...).

However, for us at least, our current understanding of the cost-benefit tradeoff is that it isn't really worth doing right now.  The chairs are making the right call.
