Just caution because a Trait proposal hasn't been put forward, outside
coin scope, so I don't want to see a good Trait proposal compromised
by a change introduced now. It probably isn't a big deal though if
source went in (source would give you a get out of jail and allow the
Trait proposal to be incompatible if need be). Same comment for the
return this proposal.
