Alexander, to make it clear: we cannot include mechanisms which
probably open other (security) issues. This is not how things work
out. TCP had so many issues in the past - regarding security,
implementation f*ups, etc. pp. It is utterly important that there is
no problem with an extension. Please join the discussion ob tcpm if
you will drive things forward. That's all what I can say - sorry!
