I really think the only difference here might be in how much of the
process to date we've each been involved with.  When this first hit the
TC, I recall discussion about whether policy process had run its course
or not and my belief was that we had consensus after input from Russ
that in fact policy process had failed here and it was appropriate for
the TC to intervene.  I would have to go do more digging and reading to
substantiate that assertion than I have time for this afternoon, but
that's the position I *thought* we agreed we were in.

Of course, a lot has changed in the time this issue has been with the
TC.  Where I struggle is in deciding the extent to which that means we
need to "push reset" and start over on this vs bringing the issue to a
reasonable conclusion and focusing our efforts instead on whatever comes
next that we can look at with fresh eyes.

I hear you, I just don't have any idea what to do differently on this
specific issue in response to knowing how you feel about it.
