This proposal idea is already in the "old" directory, and I think that's
okay.  The idea is superseded by this tech report:

This proposal idea doesn't say what platform string would be published
when HidePlatform is set to Yes.

I think #2988 has much more discussion on this topic than the proposal
idea.  Whenever #2988 results in a design, it'd be just as simple to
write a new proposal than to rewrite this one.  Does such a change even
require a proposal?  Which specification document would be changed when
making this change?  It's probably okay to throw this proposal into
"old," too.
