Yes. It is not perfect. But your proposition is not perfect either. If
we are to introduce new protocol not much better that current one (which
is only badly implemented or not implemented at all) and which is
suppost to be obsoleted soon by "the right solution" then it is better
to fix current protocol implementation and wait for that "right
solution". Without any hacks.
