I think that this much makes sense.

This is the part that I'm not sure I understand. Do we really need to  
wait until the F2F to agree to the changes that need to be made? My  
understanding is that Marcos has almost integrated all of them, and  
also that we believe we now have a level of review way above anything  
we had before. Why not just go into LC#3 next week, and hit CR#2 at  
the F2F?
