Per the last SLOBs meeting, and this mail
cc'd to the SLOBs, I had reflected for some time on this and come to
the conclusion that it can't be done the way we want to do it without
approval - abuse will be too simple.
Aside from Walter, none of the SLOBs cc'd on that mail responded, I
ask the other SLOBs to please try to understand my position so we can
wrap this up. i will have new text to propose as well.
