I haven't seen anyone make any concrete proposals for how it should 
change. Maybe I missed something.

AFAIK, the only objection to it is that there is no way to distinguish 
between whether the header gain is also an R128 album gain, or if it has 
some other semantic meaning. That seems simple to address, not 
"fundamentally broken".

If I've gotten this wrong, please help educate me.
