Certainly that's more complete and convincing.  It's also unlikely to
happen, because there just won't be agreement within the WG on other
bindings.  Is the argument, then, that if the working group can't commit
to fully specifying a binding, it shouldn't provide any guidance, or
even help as requested by those who are doing so?
