I don't think "offensive" is an adjective that could appply in any way
to your original prose. Of course, I could be wrong here since I'm not
a native english speaker. FWIW, I did take your words as a metaphor,
nothing more.
And I was really surprised to read "Ratchet the rhetoric down" since
the main tool we *all* use in standardization *is* rhetoric, and not
always based on purely technical arguments.
Not worth a "public warning", and too great power given to chairs w/o
control, IMHO.
