By "your proposal" do you mean Jacob's or mine?  Who/want is "the editor?"  When you say "router", do you mean the existing WP_Rewrite or the WP_Routes I was proposing?

I also don't follow that. What do you mean by "re-verification" and who/what is doing the "accepting?" Is the workload human or computer?

Thanks in advance for clarifying.
