Hi Dan,

I'm happy to add some text to the Quick Guide suggesting users follow practices along the lines you describe below, given the caveat that the issue is still open and hopefully soon the VM TF or the SWBPD-WG at large will make a concrete statement about best practice here.  

Does that sound OK to you (and everyone else) ?

Cheers,

Al.
