Not that it's up to me to decide, but fwiw, I'm against pulling any
such features into R1. As a lowly user, it's nice to have but
certainly not necessary from my perspective. It would take a lot of
time to implement and increase the system (and testing) complexity
quite considerably. R2 material, in my opinion.
