It makes sense and is doable, but given finite resources it's on
balance with everything else we work on. E.g. the effort I put into
drafting a new API and figure out the details will take away time from
improving Fetch and XMLHttpRequest. The effort Adam will put into
implementing the change and making sure it's tested will take away
time from him working on HTML templates. Etc.

And that's not counting that we then have two ways of doing the same
thing. That we need to update documentation. That it's not backwards
