The idea behind what I suggested is just that a zone operator can say
what their policy is, and clients can learn that, in a generalized (or
generalizable) way.  I fully admit it's a giant and expensive means to
the end, but it's the only way I know of signalling between the end
points in this otherwise mostly-stateless interaction.

control of some zone operator?
