Some of the decisions made to date are indecisive. 

For instance a decision takes something out because it's incomplete but allows
it to put it back in the spec later. Another leaves something in for now, but
allows taking it out later if problem(s) with it are not resolved. Some
decisions allow for improvement of a feature decided to be left in the spec.

It might help if the parts of the decisions which are indeed:

* Open to further discussion be specifically identified in the decision. 
* Closed to further discussion be specifically identified in the decision. 

This would let everyone know what is or is not off limits.
