What's not obvious about:

"Important: These procedures do not substitute for intervention by legal authorities. Anyone may seek advice from law enforcement authorities at any time and should do so immediately if a situation is dangerous or potentially so."

And why raise the issue here, instead of following the instructions *that you quote below* in order to ensure that the people charged with evolving the document take note? There is no requirement on those people to follow this community group.

I suggest we close this issue, and that if you feel it is necessary you send a proposal to the relevant feedback forum.

cheers
