On all the three things listed below, I know where I want them to go.
In the case of SASL, the WG is moving in a slightly different direction
to the (draft) JEP. I prefer the WG way of doing it (use extensions to
the stream header and a set of stream features). However, this would
mean reworking both the SASL and TLS JEPs, and writing another one about
stream versioning and features.

So, I think they should be deferred, since they're all related to the
use of streams, rather than application extensions (which is what I
understand the WG/JSF split to roughly cover), and they're all covered
by the WG charter.

Ultimately though, I just want them documented. I'm happy to write JEPs
if people think that would be more appropriate. I want to implement all
of this, but I don't want to do it twice.
