Have we really reached the end of the normal informal discussion
process on this issue without resolution? Proposing a formal GR now
seems very premature.

For what it's worth, my argument is summarised in Message-ID:
<87bprwlp7d.fsf@benfinney.id.au>
<URL:http://lists.debian.org/debian-policy/2009/03/msg00246.html>.

I'll underline the point that the discussion is *recent* and *ongoing*
on this issue, and many points have yet to be made. It still appears
quite feasible that a consensus will be reached *without* invoking any
formal procedure.
