Hi BooK!

Yes, when I turned this pre-RFC into a proper RFC draft I did my research
and eventually uncovered those past references too. I have used them not
only to update that (and other) parts of the draft but also to include in
the FAQ many of the past arguments and design decisions made to - hopefully
- overcome them and get the proposal accepted.

Speaking of which, what are the next steps?
