I'm split on this. While I understand the urge to optimize here, I'm not sure that documenting it here is necessary. 

Saying that an endpoint MAY use this signal gives permission, but does so without noting the potential issues. At a minimum, you would need to talk about the problems that are lurking ... especially in light of #2637, as I've noted in [my comment on #2644](

Which leads me to wondering if it's really worth documenting this here without more experimentation and data.
