Yep.

Agreed on the deployment churn - this is something that will need to
settle naturally
in the spec. As you say the changes are quite compatible with the
current Core approach,
but that doesn't necessarily mean it will be trivial to move the
code :) Do you think
there will be a big impact on the core code as it exists right now?
Is the transition
to a 0.95++ version of the spec a bumpy one from the implementation
perspective?

Is it feasible to construct a roadmap from the current Core state to
a 0.95++ compliant
state? - the reason I ask is that if you can put a roadmap together
then we may be
able to distribute the task of making the transition happen.

cheers
