Earlier I wrote that Bert submitted an April 1 RFC. Unfortunatelly it will not be published. The reason given is its length, and I must admit it was somewhat bulky. Below is the response from the RFC Editor. I obfuscated parts of the mail so that the members of the Secret Working Groups are not disclosed and we still have a possibility to publish the idea in a condensed form somewhere else.

We feel that this is too large and ponderous to fit into the
mold of April 1 RFCs. We do appreciate the satire on ******
****, but publication as an RFC does not seem like the
right venue for this. For one thing, it would be hard to
justify the resources for publishing a 36 page April 1 RFC.
Thank you for your submission.
