Please try to view your proposal from the operational side too. 
Designing a protocol wire representation and implementing that for some 
platform is quite trivial compared to the changes that are needed for 
the network support systems, the effort required for validation of that 
new functionality before the deployment, and the feasibility of doing 
the actual flag day deployment. For any practically sized operator that 
would be an exercise of years with associated costs of very substantial 
nature. Please make yourself more familiar with network operational
