FWIW, it is not at all clear to me that there was any need for either of
those GRs (particularly 2008_002, which did indeed strike me as a waste of
the GR process).

Note that the effective conclusion of both of those GRs was to do what was
happening anyway and would have happened without the GRs, apart from the
secondary effects of making the whole thing more confrontational.
