I think we're on the same page that it's a good idea-- the problem I can forsee is that if only a few servers implement this its hard to tell if servers are implementing this in a standardized fashion or not. If mIRC chooses the current implementation and something changes down the line with the majority of other servers, it may become even more of a problem having it broken than not having it at all.
