Well, given the substantial negative feedback on the list about this
proposal, plus the lack of any positive feedback from other
implementors, I'm going to make the call that we're going to do this
with a vendor prefix, even though I really dislike adding new
platform features with vendor prefixes.

(We're not the first vendor adding this particular feature with a
vendor prefix, though.)
