Just to add my POV, I also find your posts unhelpful, Wes. There's not
enough information for me to evaluate what you say, and you offer no
actual solutions to what's being discussed.

As Nick says, if you can demonstrate what you're suggesting via a
prototype implementation, that might help. But endless posts of links
to standards documents that I have neither the time nor the
inclination to read are not useful.
