    By "we", I was referring to my company. If SBL, SIL, and others can be
    convinced to pursue this, I would laud it as a step in the right direction
    and would be happy to contribute what I can to the discussion. I just think
    that anyone submitting a formal proposal should be prepared to push it
    through the system.
