One small nit: that's a logical fallacy. You're arguing from
specifics to generalities which simply isn't possible. Consider the
(in)famous Monthy Python reference: all duck's float, therefore
everything that floats is a duck. :)
If you really think that should be the case, propose a formal
ammendment to policy *explicitly* declarig it to be so. Appealing to
Ian (or anyone else) is mute: we've got a constitution, use it. :)
