Let me try to put this in another way. Everyone in this discussion
understands what is being requested. This is not like a C++ standardization
proposal which requires a legalese wording section. If and when this
proposal is accepted, relevant documentation can be amended as needed. The
important thing here is whether or not this is something that we want. The
consensus so far seems to be in the affirmative.
