It's no more pointless than the setting of initial policies in the rest
of the proposal -- it avoids bikeshedding on how things shoudl start off,
and doesn't block changes later should there be a reason to make changes.

Presumably it'll start with *some* specific tools, what's the problem
with telling developers what those tools are before asking them to
endorse something?
