I'd like to ask for a clarification. Is this meant to imply that we  
would not block progress to any stage earlier than Proposed  
Recommendation, or do we still take a group decision at those other  
transitions? In other words, are you proposing that advancement to  
FPWD, LC and CR should be essentially automatic? Or was your "to"  
meant to be a "towards"?
