I agree with Tab.

I don't think W3C should be involved with a specifications which by
design requires additional information shared between the relevant
parties (and which can't be specified in an open standard). The
specification is of no use outside the group of those parties, so
there's no benefit to the health of the web in having it developed at
the W3C.
