Deferring `chain` is, if not future-hostile to `chain`, then

The way Promises are currently spec'd, the return value of the `then`
callback is itself recursively unwrapped using `then`, rather than the more
appropriate single-unwrapping of `chain`.  Single unwrapping of the output
side is consistent with the AP2 design principal that the provider does not
determine the unwrapping policy.

You cannot consistently implement AP2 without `chain` from the get-go.  It
is the primitive unwrapping function which `then` should be calling.
