I remember we talked about this, but I couldn't find the outcome minuted.

What do other folks feel about this? Should we a) remove them completely, b)
remove them but leave a note (as I guess we're doing for Selections) that we'll
be adding this functionality into level 1 at a later date (on the assumption
that it's better to not publish something than to publish something with
errors), or c) something else? I'm happy to go whichever way the group
decides, but I'd like to make sure I won't be doing something objectionable to
someone before I do it.
