Glad to hear it!

By "get a reference" I presume you mean "an open file handle" (a la `return fopen('php://input', 'rb')`).
In which case: maybe? I can see where that would be useful for extremely large request bodies in a memory-constrained environment.
But the question becomes: is that needed frequently-enough across a wide-enough range of PHP developers to warrant inclusion in this RFC? I don't recall seeing any userland implementation from my research provide such a thing. That makes me think it's a comparatively infrequent need.
If many others disagree with that assessment, I'm happy to entertain the possibility of adding something like it to ServerRequest.
