Why should they? Lucas was so clever to write in his approval:
| 4. DPL approves.
To my understanding SPI still requires a DPL approval, just as it is
now. For SPI there shouldn't be a real difference to the current process.
For the DPL the difference is that he only needs to be concated in
stage 4 and not in stages 1-3 and 4.
