Right, that's what the proposal is about.  Steve feels (and I think I
agree) that policy is not sufficiently *clear* about this point at
present.  This is not an attempt to make us adopt compliance as a
goal, it's an attempt to clarify what we *are* doing. 

Steve did this at my urging -- I'll review it this weekend when I have
a little time, but everyone else can, of course, comment or criticize
or even second in the meantime.
