Then perhaps you should start a new thread.

First, my point was local and related to the reply to Jim. In the  
telecon, the reason I though we should put the rationale for this  
feature into the new features and rationales document is because  
that's where rationales *go*.

Second, I feel that "NF&R" shouldn't be an introduction to the new  
features. That's scope creep. See my recent email for more on this.
