For the record, I'm extremely interested in doing this, but it's a lot of
work and I have approximately zero time right now to work on Policy
things, so I can't (at the moment) help.  I probably should have said all
of that instead of not saying anything; sorry!

It strikes me as something that's best done as part of the long-delayed
larger restructuring that we've wanted to do when changing formats.
