No, I want to finde out whether there is a difference between how I
interpret the GRs and how Anthony interprets them, with respect to the
question of releasing sarge with non-free stuff in it.

Asking Anthony is the only way of finding out anything about how he
will interpret various outcomes.

Wrong. I have given my own interpretation. I can restate it here if
you missed it:

   In my interpretation each of the five currently proposed GRs will
   allow sarge to be released with the kind of non-free stuff in it
   that the RM considered OK before 2004-003.

With the obvious addition that, in case of proposal A this is only
true if sarge otherwise gets ready for release before September 1.

That is what I am doing.

Henning Makholm          "Ambiguous cases are defined as those for which the
                       compiler being used finds a legitimate interpretation
                   which is different from that which the user had in mind."
