Thank you for finally reading the proposal. This text has been in
place since this task force drafted it and approved it in Spring 2011.
Benjamin expertly authored the bulk of it in response to Steve and
numerous other task force members from the Spring 2011 F2F wanting a
MUST. Benjamin pointed out that a MUST was not the proper way to spec
it and he offered verbiage.

Best Regards,

Laura L. Carlson
