I've put some time into just such a system. It is difficult to think in
terms of protocols or language elements and then map that to an interface
at this point. The <INC> tag makes a lot possible that wasn't before. It
might be easier to start with some mockups then see if existing features
support the mockup or what would have to be changed and if those changes go
against some existing design elements, etc.

Speaking of the IETF, is anybody going to Houston in November? There is
also a HyperText conference in Seattle about the same time. Since I missed
the last WWWWW meeting I would like to know the time and place many of us
might get together, any schedules or plans?
