I thought about this myself as soon as I read the patch. I think I

Yes! As Austin probably remembers, we've discussed this before. I
definitely agree that it makes sense to somehow distinguish "immutable"
information that is a fundamental, unchanging/able property of the
message, and it might be nice to look ahead to that here.
