Hi Paul,

the need for such a mechanism periodically arises in the alto WG as a
means for providing incremental updates with the JSON-based protocol
that's being specified over there. I, for one, certainly support moving
this forward, possibly in a specifically chartered WG where usecases and
requirements from different contexts could be best evaluated.

Enrico
