To be honest I wonder if this GR is only going to pass because of
indifference. I wonder how many developers have actually read through
the GR and understand it. I'm amazed at how little explanation there has
been aimed at the non-voting geeks.

I wonder how it would stand up to the scrutiny of a lot more eyes.
There still seem to be some unresolved issues.
