I'm planning on ranking everything above FD. However, I would rank this
particular option at the same level as L.

I think requiring maintainers to implement this isn't tenable;
maintainers should accept technically viable patches which do this, and
if they do not, the CTTE can be invoked to resolve the problem.
But that said, if this is an option that needs to be on the ballot, we
should get it there quickly.
