I must admit I am extremely uneasy to open this issue.

We are in CR. We can make substantial change in the CR if we hit a specification error; that was the case for the JSON datatype which led to the current CR update.

But adding a new feature is a whole different ballgame. That, I believe, would mean we go back to WD and then a CR; if we do that we can almost be sure that we will not have our spec published on time.
