That was me making conversation, pointing out something that does not 
work. Since it does not work I don't want it to be implemented. And with 
work I mean not follow the standard.
 
For something to follow standard it has to behave the correct way to the 
outside, how it's implemented is a different matter. The above does not 
work. Period.
