Ok. I wouldn't combine CT/ELS though. I view the library as - it
should be as compliant as possible to SNIA so it can be used as a
replacement (and granted snia's definition has issues). But, it could
certainly contain extras which does more, such as this - although I
wouldn't treat it as a vendor extension.
Thanks for considering.
