My sentiments exactly, Brad.

Rest assured, that if this sort of change is implemented into Debian, the
documentation will be there (pending someone - how about Mr. Ian
Jackson?) takes on the responsibility.  This is a must-have, without any
doubt, document (or documents, as the case seems to be).

..which is what I think is happening here (for the most part).  This
post by Brad is something of a model, I believe.  It is not flammatory,
gives concise, specific example(s), is not overly debian.god-ish....
Please, all of you, take note of this style.  I feel this could get much
more done than some other forms that have been appearing around the list

And maybe the whole thread should be moved to devel?
