I want to make a community meta-comment here:

It is fair to say "it won't work because $foo."

It is not fair to say "before scratching your itch, you must satisfy *my*
half-dozen requirements."

We contribute on our own time, but those contributions cannot be gated by
others a priori. We ask for discussion and consensus before large
conceptual changes, but there are many ways to get to a rough consensus
before implementation begins. And that doesn't usually require a whitepaper.
