I'm OK with #1.

Eventually, I think we may want to edit 2.2.1 to include this. I have seen
quite a bit of variation in interpretation 2.2.1 over the years regarding
inactivity timeout so would welcome an opportunity to combine the two
tighten up the wording while not reducing 2.2.1 (as per our charter)
