Obviously, since I proposed it, I'm OK with it.  I haven't seen anyone
else with an opinion.

Overall, I've seen a handful of "I need this" and one "I've
implemented this", lots of misunderstanding about what the
proposal is, and a handful of "There's no use for this."
There's been some discussion of what the seperator character
should be, which is fine but irrelevant if the answer to the bigger
question is "no".

Since the majority of the comments since the IETF meeting have
been negative, I'm inclined to drop this work.  I still think it's
necessary, but if the major players in the WG push against it then
I'm not going to pursue it.
