I think many of us feel it'd be better if this kind of thing were not
needed at all, however, the best way to ensure it doesn't end up being used
is to write code, not to try and block alternative approaches. If Bitcoin
is robust the market should sort it out. If it's robust for some
transactions and not others, that makes for a fun project for a future
generation of hackers to sort out.

OK, enough philosophy - let's try and keep this thread just for discussion
of the BIP itself from now on. If you'd like to continue debating the
Future of Bitcoin please change the subject line and break it out into a
new thread.
