Thanks for the clarification. I didn't mean to imply that decisions were
made by consensus on this list, rather that consensus on this list and
agreement by a number of key UTC members (e.g. in this case Ken
Whistler, who seems to understand the situation well and be in general
agreement with what Ted and I are saying) is a good basis for moving
forward to a formal proposal; whereas sharp disagreement on this list
would suggest that a proposal, at least from outsiders like Ted and
myself, is unlikely to be successful.

I regret that I will be unable to attend a UTC meeting in the near
future, certainly unless anyone pays my fare from London. So I will
probably have to rely on others to present any proposal which I might be
a party to. But I can help to provide background material. Indeed I am
drafting something now and will make it available soon.
