I agree with this proposal (particularly since "nuke" might not 
translate accurately).

This seems a bit like a personal preference to me. As such, I don't 
think it should block the LCWD publication although if Glenn created a 
PR that was agreeable to Robin, then I  don't see any harm in merging it.

I don't think this point should block publication of a LCWD. (I also 
think the reference policy [1] describes a way to handle this for 
subsequent publications.)
