Belated thank you for your feedback.

No-one else has spoken up in a way which suggests they'd second my
proposal, so I'm not going to pursue it.

If Russ's proposal is the one we end up adopting, one possibility is
that we have another GR simply to increase the limits a bit, after we've
had some experience working within the new procedure.
