Btw, I think this discussion basically puts the cart before the horse,
so to speak.  You say you are developing a new back-end, which might
need these changes, but we never saw that back-end and didn't yet
decide it's a useful addition to Emacs.  IMO, this is the wrong order
of discussing this stuff.  let's first see the feature itself, discuss
its implementation and integration with Emacs, and only after that
talk about any necessary changes in the infrastructure.  That way, all
the sides of the discussion will know what's at stake, and the
discussion becomes more concrete.
