I had considered it as a third option in my proposal: using the WMF to
qualify operations. It is a different way to qualify them as safe
and/or idempotent, with some additional semantics.

However, I removed it from my email as I was told that the WG had this
discussion, and had decided that it wasn't the way to go with this
particular requirement.
