Either controversial, or alternatively, that people are happy with
what has been said.

I don't have a strong opinion, except to suggest doing whichever route
will cause you the least amount of effort makes the most sense.
A number of years ago, when I was very active on the Policy Group, I
proposed transitioning the policy's use of the terms SHOULD, MUST,
etc. towards the meanings of those words as they are used in the IETF
RFCs. I also proposed restructuring the policy document, as it had
become somewhat disorganised over the years. I (sadly) do not have
time nowadays to be involved in this, but I offer it as a proposal to
reconsider now during such a major piece of work as this.
Good luck, and thanks for your work!
