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.
