hi, I'm told that 4949 took a lot of compromise to arrive at.
(I personally can't recall the debate at all, but I had a new baby around
that time)

I think that doing 4949bis is probably the wrong approach.
Instead, I would suggest a round of Updates (Amends) 4949, and then later on,
collect it back.

We had a discussion a few weeks ago about on-path attackers vs packet dropping.
I wrote draft-richardson-saag-onpath-attacker-00 to capture that discussion,
and bring it forward, and yes, Amend rfc4949. (co-authors sought)
