This discussion has already occurred, and the result is that to be considered,
a proposal must

be simple to add to the standard, and

be simple to add to a compiler, and

address a simple deficiency in an existing feature
or a simple discrepancy between existing features.

All other proposals are beyond the scope of the Markham resolutions.


Furthermore, the Markham resolutions state that WG5 won't consider
any more new proposals until f1x is published.

US-TAG can vote on whether the US should ask WG5 to change the last part,
to allow a UNITS TS to proceed before f1x is published.

The above is a direct reading of the Markham resolutions and supporting documents
and I believe it is quite clear.
