David:

Governments work on principles at OECD and in such dialogs as the High 
Level Group all the time.  The question is whether principles are 
sufficient at this point to establish the needed foundation for progress 
on these issues.  Principles are in many cases the best approach as they 
provide the flexibility of application that allows for technology and 
other developments that make detailed regulations obsolete in short order.
