Any objections to closing this as "won't fix"?

> Hi,
> Avro looks like an interesting project, so I was looking at the specification. I noticed
that varints use zig-zag encoding which is a good signed representation. However, id-like
values are very common and they are often always positive. I think it would be nice to support
them as efficiently as possible too (like Protocol Buffers, for example). Would something
like this be considered at all?
