Yup, what I'm getting from this conversation is that we ought to try to gain a bit more clarity than we currently have on this question.   I'm hearing a lot of hand-wavey protests, but when I try to dig deeper it's not clear that much analysis has actually occurred.   That analysis would be worthwhile to do and to write up as an informational draft.   I think the informational draft should _make no recommendations_ but should just talk about the various use cases.
