Well, nobody has yet explained what exactly that problem is, or at least I  
haven't seen any such explanation. All people have done is assert that  
there is a problem; I have absolutely no idea what this problem is.

On the other hand, the people uncomfortable with the restrictions have  
explained their point of view at length.

High handed? Somehow I doubt we are actually speaking the same language  
here.

It's hard to find a compromise with a position that's never been  
explained. Only one of the sides in this dispute is that way.
