To do so, you would have to remove the capability to do streamed sequences
or do them some other way.  I think streamed sequences could be useful for
moving large blocks of data over long distances.

There is even a better solution.

Change FC-FS and it's recovery qualifiers to include sequence_id as part of
the
qualifier.  It's stupid to have to "retire" a sequence count range for all
values of sequence_id.  That way, error recovery could be performed using a
new
sequence id and start from zero.
