I uneasy having to supply a separate information channel when you
already have a channel established. The only problem is that you want
to interpolate asynchronous information in the middle of a channel of
other information. Telnet already does this by having some escape

Why not use an escape code mechanism for those information channels
that want to send status information back? This won't be MOST servers,
only a few. The client just would have to look for the escape codes in
the data stream.
