Certainly, as time passes, we'll face the "stale downstream" problem as
well.  I would guess eventually, it will make sense for separate
trackers to be used.

But I think taking a bit of wait and see attitude for a bit is in order
without preconceptions, and making presumptions based on rapidly
changing circumstances is hazardous.  By this fall, I think we'll have a
much better feeling when/if separate trackers make sense.
