I understand the concern but no ill intent was meant on our part. A FPWD
is only a FPWD after all and it's not the first time web perf is
published one to gather feedback and don't pursuit it further after
that. I guess our criteria for publishing a FPWD in web perf is lower
than in CSS or SVG. We have other ideas listed at [1] but not mature
enough to justify wider review.

If you believe the proposed idea isn't sound enough, please let us know.
As I said, we'd like feedback.
