Well, it would be possible to do this, since we can see for how many
seconds in the future the token will be valid for, and refresh them
after that. It might be possible to alter the client security object
directly, so you wouldn't need to add a bunch of checks in call sites.

But just none of the relevant code does anything like that now.
