´╗┐Given the extreme length and complexity of this email thread, and that one 
main proposal has emerged (with some viable alternatives to discuss), I've 
created a Wiki page to formalize the proposal and discussion points, which 
also helps us easier track through than the email thread currently does.


At this point, I'd like to suggest that this email thread be suspended (at 
least until we have further action to take), and that we move the discussion 
of the proposal and alternatives to the Wiki page. I encourage each 
participant in this thread (especially those with the alternate proposals) 
to review what I've written to ensure accuracy and fair balance, and to make 
any corrections as necessary if I misstated anything, as well as add details 
which are relevant that I missed. I also encourage you to use the 
"discussion" feature of the page to further any discussion points which are 
not yet ready to be written up in the main Wiki page.
