If we agree on it I think it's undoubtedly the best way forward :-). IOW we
build a public implementation of 'inheritance' - make the code and examples
public and that effectively defines what the community at large understands
by the spec. In this way anyone on the SIG or WGs who has a differently
interpretation can speak up now.
The only qualification is that the API has to be very well documented so we
all agree what it does!

Of course. And working this out in public would be valuable.
