Yes. You could hide amongst the herd with zero magical bullshit being

Hence the importance of getting behind it and pushing it as a standard part
of eventual TLS1.3 migrations, rather than have it arrive AFTER the initial
major 1.3 migrations and thereby requiring further effort to make it

Otherwise it's like someone bringing out the ketchup after you have already
finished eating your hot dog.
