You did not mention you have an implementation for that. Can you share your
implementation and a short description of the protocol?

I usually implement stuff first to scratch an itch and then try to
standardize that later on. This way I can make sure the standard I'm
proposing is actually working and doing what it is supposed to.

Otherwise you might end up having complex standards and no implementations.
