I think those changes did most/all of the work to resolve the really
important issues from my perspective.[1] However, Bdale and the RMs
are the people who have to decide on this, so my opinion doesn't
really count for anything.

If anyone else has any comments on why the current version of NM
doesn't address the concerns in §4 of the CTTE decision, please raise
them to the bug.

1: In case it wasn't clear: thanks to you and Michael for taking the
concerns of the CTTE seriously and working to find a solution;
publishing the decision now instead of earlier was just because of a
lack of time on my part.
I've had so much good luck recently I was getting sated with it. It's
like sugar, good luck. At first it's very sweet, but after a while you
start to think: any more of this and I shall be sick.
