One important consideration to take into account here is speed. During the TPAC face to face, I believe I heard several people mentioning that they wanted to move quickly with this specification (I recall hearing Q1 for something roughly stable  we're halfway across!). I don't know what the schedule is on the RTC side, but if the gUM spec has an important dependency on another, in order to be considered roughly stable the other has to be roughly stable too.

I don't have a specific bone in this, I'm just pointing out that if we indeed wish to move as fast as people declared, it may have consequences on what goes where.
