I'd be willing to do it, provided that it's a good idea and that I have
sufficient specs to implement it correctly.

I don't understand you there. It's fairly simple if we implement it for
VoD only. And it doesn't make sense to me to try to implement for the
broadcast case: the stream output is set up by the server and it's RTP,
nothing else, and the client has to deal with what's available.
