I understand there is some history behind that specific proposal, but two things concern me:
1) The Internet services marketplace has evolved greatly since 2002
2) An updated and broader consultation is probably necessary at this point

IMO, guidelines on stored data access and use are a more pragmatic focus. The apparent simplicity of specific retention requirements is to me their key weakness. It's too easy just to establish a number and expect all SPs to comply, regardless of data retention purpose.

I had a discussion with activists and sys-admins and ISPs in 2002 and we 
came also to 6 weeks after a much longer discussion. Let's please stick with 
6 weeks.
