The initiative is interesting, and exactly one of those in which

Still, I propose an alternative approach. What about starting by
listing the options you (as you seems to have experience in this
issue) think should be supported by all terminals. Then, for each
implementation we have (i.e., each package providing
x-terminal-emulator) we should list if they have that option and which
is its semantics.

Having such a list will make clear which approach is the better.
