I'm with Robert.  Such a discussion is morally indistinguishable from a
new feature, and so we shouldn't consider it at this point in the cycle
--- even if it seemed likely that we could easily get to a consensus,
which I doubt.  If we'd dealt with the issue back in February when the
previous discussion happened, that'd be fine, but now's not the time
to decide it has to be resolved for 9.6.
