I'm not sure how to take this.

Is it considered inappropriate to talk openly about possibilities.
I can whitness that as implementer this can be a problem. I don't consider it severe enought to go through the trouble of writing an I-D about it, but it's good the hear others experiances.

If you want to make a change to how the numbers are assigned, you
should write an Internet Draft to change the procedure and bring it
to the TLS WG. "What about this" and "how about that" are fairly
meaningless when there is already rules that people agreed to on how
to do this.
