I appreciate what you're saying here (although I think 6.1.1 overrides
that), but as one of the delegated Policy Editors, I would immediately
punt such a question arising in the Policy context to the TC under 6.1.1
and 6.1.3.  There is absolutely no way the normal Policy maintenance
process could deal with this debate.

If it makes you feel more comfortable with this process, please assume
that's happened.
