Ah, I understand, thanks. I'm not opposed, but I can't volunteer to
do this for 1.5, unfortunately...

In the meantime, there is a meta-workaround. It's sort of a burden
for clients, I realize, but they could still check the capability
using the RA layer, and then display the appropriate warning or choice
to the user, using simply "a priori" knowledge of what features have
client-side-only slow support (e.g., depth). It's not ideal for that
knowledge to need to be encoded in each client, but it is doable,
until we get the above feature.
