Thank you for this very succinct clarification.

Please note that both proposals are on our Task Force agenda this
Thursday. I hope both of you can participate in that teleconference.

Let me add that, yes, everyone is free to pursue their own proposal,
But, on the other hand, our voice is much stronger when we can reach agreement. So
the effort to reach agreement is very worthwhile. In that regard I want
to thank both of you for your effort on title. You have helped bring us
closer together.

Of course, if we can't reach agreement, we can't. In that instance we look for a consensus
position among Task Force participants. In such a situation it is important to
remember that consensus is not the same as unanimity.
