        Err, no. This is my email. Not your email. Not
 Shakespeare's.  I get to decide whether a mail like this one gets to
 be declassified, not the Bard of Avon. So, if it is implied in aj's
 proposal that bits are to be redacted from mails in which they are
 quoted, then I think it should be specified -- already people are
 taking opposing sides on this issue, who knows where futur delegates
 may end up interpreting the current wording?
