I might agree with you, but it's the "not at first" that scares me.  If 
it's something that will "probably" happen, then we should do it now 
(while things are already being changed).  It will be way harder to 
change it later.  However, I'm not sure it would really be needed at 
all.  I'll have to think about it a bit.
