Mark hated the idea. I don't think anyone understood why.

As I recall, there had been nine other substantially similar proposals 
before the one I wrote, most or all from actual implementers. Some weren't 
competently designed and written, but nine is an amazingly large number for 
this kind of thing. There was no lack of demand for MOVE, just Mark's 
resistance.
