I'm not sure what you mean by "giving consideration" in this context.
Could you clarify?

This would fall under requirement 4.1 B, which has as specific
technique:
"Is the subdivision dependent upon other subdivisions (that is, if it is
implemented must others also be implemented)?"

This already defined as part of the publication rules

I don't think we address this; what do you think should be said on this
topic?
