... and I believe that blowing it on SCE doesn't have merit either.

That's the entire thing why I am opposing the use of ECT(1) unless we're 
*really* *really* *really* sure there is something we want to blow it on.

Using it for SCE for me is marginal benefit compared to what ECT(1) could 
be used for either. I think L4S is proposing enough novelty that it could 
be used for that, but I'm open for other suggestions. SCE isn't enough.
