There are no stupid questions. Probably the best thing is to create a
new JEP, because the syntax and semantics of the standards-track
proposal will probably be different enough from the current protocol
that we might not be able to ensure compatibility. Perhaps the best way
to proceed would be to discuss the changes people would like to make and
see if they can be retrofitted onto the current message event protocol.
Any volunteers?
