See the prior justification, plus the lack of objections in the  
designated time period for objections. None of the associated actions  
seemed likely to result in a monolithic Change Proposal. They do seem  
likely to result in new bugs and issues along the lines of ISSUE-85 <

In the meantime, it doesn't seem helpful to the group's bookkeeping to  
hold this issue open.

For now, I've unbound both of the actions from ISSUE-35; they are now  
freestanding actions.

Note: the issue was closed without prejudice. That means that if I  
made a mistake in closing or if new info comes up then we can still  
reopen it. In particular, if anyone wants to write a monolithic Change  
Proposal for ISSUE-35, instead of handling any needed changes  
individually, then I will gladly reopen it.
