+1 on the improvement and no RFC needed.  I echo Assefa's comments.

Hi Fabian,

I agree with the assessment that It is a good improvement. Checking 
quickly, I do not see any issues of doing what you propose if the 
current quirks and functionality described in #2531 are kept.  I also 
agree that there is no need for an RFC.

best regards,
