All day we've explored different ways of solving the same use cases.
I'm certainly open to discuss them. However, I do not understand what is
broken or wrong with the current proposal.

All these things aside, Greg Whitehead helped identity something we will
need to change with the current proposal.  We will need a new revision
of the document, so we have plenty of time to discuss other options.  If
Greg doesn't send out the details, I'll send out details tomorrow.
