We have discussed this in TF meetings (although I can't remember and don't  
have time to look for pointers to the specific minutes now).

There are specs that are clearly dealing with stuff that is getting on for

exclusions *may* mean the director really wants to push something, and the  
AC may approve instead of appealing.
