Hi Adam,

The current proposal seems useful to me.
I like the fact it allows potential optimizations for native-backed
streams like Request/Response body while working generally for any
stream whose chunks are transferable.

The explainer goes into more detail of why you'd want to do this, but briefly it provides a convenient way to do thread-offloading for streams-using code.
