Do you think this is something that we should tackle as part of this GR or
as a separate change?  It feels somewhat orthogonal to me.

I floated the idea but I don't believe anyone has supported the proposal
that I made, and I don't think there's more than one person expressing
support for any other specific proposal.  I was letting the discussion
continue (I owe another response in that thread), but I don't want to add
anything substantive to the GR draft unless there's a fairly clear
consensus in favor of it.  So if folks would like to see this change as
well, please speak up!
