Well, it is a good conjunction on how it works and how my reading of
this situation works :)

That is, I am not particularly partisan to *any* option that revises
the current status (unless, say, somebody were to propose that "all
old mails to d-private are declassified now, no questions asked"). If
we vote among the three options currently on the table, I would be
happy if any of them defeats FD. My preferences between each
possibility do not weigh equally.

I *expect* most people to have a similar reasoning. I expect FD to be
weighed lower in our collective preferences to all of the other
options. Hopefully, that's what will happen.
