I will consider writing this proposal unless somebody wants to do it 
earlier. However, I'd like no clock to be started unless I know when 
I'll be able to do it. So consider me a candidate for this, nothing more.

And yes, removing the feature would address ISSUE-2 as well. If the 
outcome of the WG decision will be to keep a/@ping, ISSUE-2 will still 
need to be considered separately.
