Thanks for this constructive overview.  I think we should aim to  
include all 3 of these patches into Drupal 6.

I'm tempted to commit all 3 of these patches later tonight.  The code  
looks ready, they just could do with more testing.  If committing  
these patches breaks a form or two, it should be easy to recover from  
that over the weekend.  (Although, history has learned us that we  
should be careful with this. ;))

The sooner we can get this in core, the sooner we can move on with  
the other patches.
