Received. I assume nobody's responding because it's not a very widely
interesting proposal, and doesn't have any motivation.
It sounds like you're describing a library that you could implement
yourself and put on GitHub, where anyone could use it regardless of
standardization. Have you tried implementing it? Is the implementation
useful to you? Is the implementation useful to others?
