Mozilla is in favour of changing TLS to provide a "must-staple"
indicator. We feel it's necessary to be able to get to hard-fail on
revocation problems, as part of our future integrated strategy to
improve how revocation works:

https://wiki.mozilla.org/CA:RevocationPlan

(I reference that page for information; this list is probably not the
place for discussing other aspects of our revocation plan if you have
questions or concerns about it. You probably want
mozilla.dev.security.policy[0] for that.)
