Aren't the bandwidth issues even worse for SIMPLE? From the sample
packets that I've seen, it would surely seem so.

The drafts WILL not change at this poinrt (I'm talking about -core and
-im) as they have completed the IESG review, etc. I'm not sure how new
stream-features get registered. I presume this is handled by IANA now
(stpeter??). This would have to be a new I-D, or just simply use a JEP
to document your own extensions. ie, there is nothing preventing you
from using a stream feature which is in your own (or the DOD's
namespace), and then documenting it someplace.
