I'm just asking for a little transparency here: as far as I can see there
were no bugs filed or public e-mail discussion on this nor was there any
explanation in the check-in to change the spec. We understand that things
change but we're hoping that we're getting close to Last Call and we'd
like an opportunity to participate in the discussion before things show
up unexpectedly at this point.

Thanks,

Adrian.
