When there is consensus, and the practice follows the consensus,
then we write it into policy. Just a bunch of us munchkins agreeing on
a mailing list somewhere (consensus) is not, in my opinion, enough:
existing practice must shift. There are exceptions to this policy
change rule, but I have not, sofar, seen any compelling arguments to
warrant departing from the "policy defines existing standard behaviour"
rule so far.
Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. Second
marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.
