Since it's not an incompatible change, couldn't it be done in a R7 of the
X11 protocol spec?   (Even though we claim the katamari is X11R7.x now,
the last X11 protocol spec update was R6.8, when we defined the new
constants & address families for IPv6.)

If not, the X12 wishlist is available for your wiki-editing pleasure:
