I think Mark's characterization is accurate, and you are correct that we 
did not vote.  My remembrance:  most of the speakers favored inclusion of 
generally useful tools/toolkits/templates in the scope and 
deliverables.  There was some dissent but no violent opposition.  Therefore 
-- proceeding informally at this stage -- we recorded the apparent majority 

If there is strong objection to putting it in at this stage, then we can 
leave it out and raise a formal issue.  If we put it in but we're not 
unanimous, then we can raise a formal issue about taking it out.  Given the 
apparent majority opinion towards inclusion, I think the second makes 
sense.  But ... we can go either way.

Any other opinions?
