I think it's too late for that.  The TC has been asked to rule on the
matter, and we appear to have a consensus regarding the correct technical
path forward.  If there are specific technical objections to the proposed
resolution, we should of course take those on board; but I don't think it
helps anything to waffle on the question of who is making the decision.
