Oh, interesting, albeit that was not subject of my question.

My question in fact was whether *I* can use it to freeze *my* funds; because I 
think that would be an interesting feature for various purposes.
From the state of BIP65 I talked about, it is not even clear whether that is 
possible.

Your observation beyond that is a valid concern though.
So both should be addressed.
