As I understand it, Silvia is suggesting you use an existing feature in the spec to do what you want to do, whereas you are proposing to add a *new* feature to the spec to do what you want to do.

As per the FAQ, adding new features requires justification; not adding new features does not require justification.

I'm not saying your new feature is without any justification.
