I think a tiny number of people would use it, so from a purely engineering
priority perspective my initial reaction is "not worth it."

However, as a demonstration of the flexibility of the payment protocol and
because it is a really nifty idea that will give lots of people warm
fuzzies I think you should do it and we should pull it.
