Mark, thanks for the details.
Now... I have seen some discussion as to possible issues and
such (I guess I am to blame for some of that).
What I have not yet seen is any supportive statements from
people that they indeed need this functionality. Best would
be if operators of course tell us they need it. But in
general, we'd like to hear statements about the need for
this functionality. So an answer to this question:

Mark's answer is just one answer that seem to support a YES answer
