That is all even more highly speculative than the plans for Interchange
6's central features, so I would not count on any of that unless you know
someone who wants to fund it.
I think it's safer to plan on having Interchange 5 and 6 handling
different parts of the URL space for a domain as a coexistence strategy,
which is just about as good but doesn't involve lots of engineering work
that may or may not ever happen.
