Just for the record, although Joachim seems to have received his answer and explanation - since the text he quoted was from my recent RFS's, I'd just like to point out that Paul Wise is absolutely right - I do remember the initial goals of the DM policy, and I think they're quite the right thing to do, so I'm sticking by them :) Even more so now that some DD's (at the very least Paul Wise and Sandro Tosi, and also Hector Oron who uploaded the last revision of qliss3d for me and set DMUA) have expressed their agreement to it.
