Reviewing the responses, to date we have only seen responses advocating 
change proposals 3-5 below.  If we missed an email, let us know.  For 
now, we are proceeding under the assumption that there are only 3 "live" 

Note: in the case where there were more than one person advocating a 
solution, I elected to only include a reference to the first such 
advocate received.
