I tremendously agree with this, and reckon this proposal is way more in
the direction of what I'd like to see.

I have a couple of minor nitpicks about the proposal, that needs a bit
tweaking IMHO, but that can be done through a DEP. I'll try to formulate
them, but I've a trip to the US to plan, so I don't really have the time
to write about them just now.

Mind to start a DEP with this proposal as a basis ?
