In principle, possible.

I'm concerned about our ability to anticipate all possible workflows
well enough to define a set of policy variables that wouldn't be more
straitjacket than help.  A likely outcome seems to be paying a lot of
complexity cost for little gain.

That doesn't mean I'm trying to prevent a design discussion, though.  
My misgivings could be wrong.
