My change proposal for Issue 93 is due March 31st.

Has Cynthia's proposal been put forth as a formal change proposal for 
Issue 32? The reason I ask, is that I'll incorporate a counter-proposal 
to the Issue 32 proposal, in conjunction with my Issue 93 change 
proposal. And I suppose the counter is true -- Cynthia's proposal will 
be counter to mine, to remove Details altogether from the spec.

Regardless, the Issue 93 proposal is one I can't do early, I have 
technical proofs I need to create for this one, and they will take time.
