The proposals that are on the table try to do that. We're trying to
figure out in advance whether one of the proposals meet your standard
of "a _new_ decision".

Yes it is. You are the official that the proposals aim to overrule. It
is important whether or not you would consider the proposed text as an
actual decision to overrule you.

Henning Makholm                         "This imposes the restriction on any
                                  procedure statement that the kind and type
                             of each actual parameter be compatible with the
                       kind and type of the corresponding formal parameter."
