It is hard to imagine the IESG allowing functionality this speculative
to arrive in a specification that is recycling at DS.  And for good
reason.  There is no chance that any functionality like this could get
implementation reports sufficient to qualify for DS within three IETFs
let alone within a couple of days or weeks.

This work doesn't belong in this specification.  It may not belong
anywhere because of the issues cited by Perry.
