This is a DISCUSS purely because I want to discuss it; whatever the
result is, I will be clearing the DISCUSS, and not delaying the document
on this point:  The last paragraph of Section 4 makes me wonder whether
this should "update" 5246.  Basically, while this is an extension (which
wouldn't normally use "updates"), it's one that you're proposing as
standard behavior, and not really as an extension.
