It might well be at some point, but I don't think we are at that
point yet. We've only very recently begun to have a discussion
about the idea of delivering such as document at all.

It seems clear already that we do have some fundamental objections
to doing it at all. At least to having something in the general
form of the draft I put together, and to it being normative.

But then I can't think of a single instance of any decisions we've
made (or tried to make) in this group that someone didn't object to.
