Agree & your final sentence is appreciated.

I think because every time someone tries to gather requirements to address
the enumerability problem, the question of whether or not it needs to be
addressed at all gets brought up. I think straight answer is "it is a
requirement for a significant community, and not for others". I suspect we
are never going to get consensus on whether or not it should be a
requirement, and we will generate heat but not light from further
discussion. If it is sufficiently significant, IMHO it should be addressed,
and if it is expensive (especially but not exclusively server side) it
should be optional in its implementation.
