Yes! Important to point out that this part is so drafty and  
incomplete I'd not even dignify it with the word "propoosal" :-)

This is the part I'm struggling with frankly (it's not easy to design  
this well). Am totally open to suggestions.

Having some good use cases to test against is helpful here. I'll talk
