Apologies for top posting.

I whole-heartedly support this Candidate TF Resolution, and have said
publicly as an individual that I also support this position.

There is currently a collaborative counter-proposal that is being crafted
for submission, and while I am not the 'owner' of this initiative, I have
already contributed to it.  Please see:

Cheers!
