If I might top-post, I had thoughts about a couple of things people said at
various points in the thread ...

   - Kazuho, thank you for submitting this proposal.
   - I agree that this concept doesn't need to be tied to qlog, even if
   initial implementations use it with qlog.
   - I see that people have provided questions and concerns. It seems
   simpler to have those conversations if the well-known URI is described
   separately, and at a high level, and other specifications describe specific
   usages and how the concerns would be addressed in specific usages.
   - I would hope that it would be easier for operator types to engage in
   discussion about a general capability, and I can imagine that people
   looking at a description of the general capability might propose additional
   usages that we might not have thought of, because we're thinking about the
   qlog usage.

Best,

Spencer
