We’ve heard people’s preferences here, got a sense of implementer intent, and run some experiments using the alternative approaches. I don’t see minds being changed.

Based on all of that and the discussion involved, I don’t think we’ve met the criteria below to make a change.

Closing with no action. Thanks to everyone for talking this through and coming to the table with data.

Cheers,
