I thought there was agreement on this issue. However, I keep raising it, and it doesn't seem to make it into the drafts.

We have ISSUE-170: "Definition of and what/whether limitations around data append and first parties" open as the issue tracking this question. I believe the group does not have agreement on this issue, which is why it is one of the several OPEN issues post our recent cleanup.
