Dear all,

Thanks Jack for having opened this thread and list the various 
alternatives and to the ones who have voiced their opinion.
My personal opinion is your "Cop out" third way:

I would indeed let the spec as it is in its current state and make a 
broad call for implementations now. We can see what has _actually_ been 
implemented in a few months, when we are ready to transition to PR and 
at this stage see what (non implemented) parts need to be taken out of 
the spec and might be included in a simple note.
