I see merit in both alternatives, so I still update both of them occasionally. I did withdraw 3150 at one point, but I later figured out a possible solution to the previously fatal flaw in its namespace handling semantics and moved it back to Deferred.

I tend not to announce any updates to either of them, since they'll remain pure speculation in the absence of clear use cases where they would provide a compelling readability benefit over the status quo.
