In general, I think this is useful. I can think of specific situations where
it would be nice/would have been nice to have. In fact, a few of us went
some ways towards designing just such a system (using different mechanisms)
when we were deep into the MANET/OSPF space, but never released,
implemented, etc., the idea.

I would put my vote into making this a WG doc and moving it forward.
