No problem. I contemplated whether the motion needs to be opposed, but
I don't think that's entirely
appropriate, since it's not a change in direction towards something
more problematic. We (meaning you
and I) will need to write a paper for the Issaquah meeting, and if
that fails, consider a DIS ballot
comment, and if that fails too, well, then you may need to
deliberately be non-conforming if that's
what it comes to.
