We have WATCH, and even though IRCv3 says there's no standard of implementation it seems to work just fine for everyone using it.

I don't think this is a necessary feature for 3.2.x, but maybe could be an additional module for 3.4.

Uh, yeah, no offense to the submitter or makers of the MONITOR specification but.. what's wrong with WATCH? It has been working for over a decade (if not longer) and the syntax of this MONITOR command looks surprisingly similar to MONITOR (I'm sure there are some differences..).
I don't know the interoperability problems, but we announce WATCH and WATCHOPTS in 005.

Is this IRCv3 working group only making new specifications just... to make new specifications? I certainly hope not in general, but for this "feature" it looks that way.

Heh bumped into this
People asking the same thing, then nenoboy joining in threatening that WATCH will become deprecated... typical.
