You are right with counting words, and Bill is wrong when he says the
team was mentioned "several" times.  But since there was no rationale
for the criteria put on release arches, people tried to find some; and
security support was one of them.

The interesting question still is:  Do the DPL candidates think it is in
order that such a plan is designed without consulting the security team?
Did they know it wasn't consulted? etc.

If it escaped the prospective DPLs, that also shows something.
