Moving it to GD would not be a good idea. One of the suggestions
for which John Slatin and I drafted language asserts that where there
are ambiguities or interpretive questions to be resolved in applying
the guidelines, the purpose of each guideline and success criterion
should be the foremost consideration. Moving the rationale out of the
principal guidelines document would only discourage implementors from
following this advice, who would then have to resort to another
document to ascertain the rationale underlying each guideline. Of
course, the Guide document will provide additional explanations, but
it should still be possible to understand the purposes of the
guidelines at a basic level without having recourse to secondary
material.
