It's clear that whether this kind of dependency is allowed is a key
issue (perhaps even _the_ key issue) in this dispute. The question of
the default init system is in some ways a proxy for the coupling
question. And the extent and timing of such dependencies is clearly a
matter that ought to be dealt with in the policy manual. So it is
definitely a matter of technical policy.
Whether the matter is ripe for the TC is not something that I would
expect the Secretary to rule on. I think that's a matter for the TC.
(The alternative would be to contemplate the TC making a decision on
policy and the Secretary then stating that the TC decision was invalid
and of no effect.)
But even if it is for the Secretary to rule on, I hope that the
Secretary will agree that it's clear that the question is ripe for a
TC decision (if not wildly overdue).
