	As an author of one of these proposals, and as an individual
 who still holds that the changes made in GR 2004_003 were
 editorial in nature, I have this to say: despite what you or I
 believe as individuals about the nature of the language chages in the
 previous GR, we are in the current GR process because the release
 policy changed.

	The current proposal merely acknowledges the reality that
 things changed: prior to the GR, we were on our way to releasing
 sarge;  post gr 2004 003, we are not.

	I don't think we can bury our heads in the sand and pretend
 nothing changed -- whether or not we believe anything should have
