Looks good, in principle, at least. The main problem with it is that it's at
an early development stage, and seems to be derelict, there are no other
documents that I could find that follow up this initial note. Which means
that they've not taken the time to hash out the implementation problems and
I say we roll our own (since this isn't even close to being finished anyway),
but look to ICE for ideas.
