Just a passing observation: if there isn't consensus, the next step is 
to look for which proposals have would attract the weakest objections. 
Knowledge of which proposals each of you might support is no where near 
as useful as knowing which proposals you would actively object to, which 
in turn is no where near as useful as knowing the basis for such objections.

An occasional +1 here or there is fine, but seeing three such inputs is 
what caused me to send this note.  I encourage each of you (and all of 
the members of the working group for that matter) to identify which 
proposals you see as actively harmful (and to say why) and/or to focus 
on suggestions in the form of concrete changes to existing proposals 
which would result in something you would no longer object to.
