That's why I suggested (on the nnfs list, I believe) that we should
probably start with an "informational" RFC (once we have the design). Or
maybe "experimental". Those are relatively easy.

Once there is enough interest (and working code), it can then be put on
the standards track.

There's a RFC detailing all this, but I have no intention to go hunting it
down right now :-)
