    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.
