> Having shield not cancel immediately but rather wait and cancel will cause long timed shielded operations to stall the task cancellation, usually for no good. This isn't the general case.

What I'm suggesting is that maybe it actually is good in the general case :-). If an operation can't be cancelled, that's too bad, but it's generally still better to wait then to silently leak it into the background.
