>Issue 69:  Discourage flavors/levels/options
>Issue 70:  Clarify "flavors of conformance"

My suggestion on these is to publish a Working Draft with all the
flavors (Gd 3), product-class facets (Ck 4.2), profiles (Gd 5),
levels (Gd 5), modules (Gd 5), discretionary choices (Gd 8),
potential for deprecation (Gd 9), and potential for extensions
(Gd 10), collectively known as the Dimensions of Variability, in
essentially the same form as we've seen. Let the larger audience
tell you what they like and don't like.

Even if all the above survive as discrete dimensions, we might
arrive at a more logical progression or regrouping. From that and
from additional comments, it may be easier to obtain a criterion
for "too many dimensions" being used together.
