Another solution that would work: stop publishing RFCs. :)
I really don’t see what the objection to this is. If it works, we win. If it doesn’t work, I don’t think we’re any worse off. You assume that having three types will triple the rehashing, but there’s no real justification for that assumption. Does a hash table make things slower? This is sort of analogous: instead of one bucket, you have multiple buckets, each with a clearly defined meaning. Even if it doesn’t dramatically improve things, it probably won’t make them significantly worse.
