It's normal to change one's mind. We're designing. I changed mine
several times on some subject and am not ashamed of this. You even
made me change my mind about some points on the encoding. That's fine.

That's a point where I agree with Mike when he constantly repeats
"show me the data". Of course producing data take a huge amount of
time but in the end we know why we want the things one way or another.
