It should be available for public review in 3-4 months. We need to do
a thorough review of the draft document, and tidy up a few loose ends,
but it's pretty much done.

I see no reason why you couldn't go ahead and implement what's in
121221.1 as an extension under a (!dwarf_strict) guard. Unless it
would really confuse old debuggers, I don't think you'd need to guard
it with -gdwarf-5.
