So it is "current", but we cannot know about it (absolutely *no* way, and
rest assured I tried several on Friday; the quote I did was from the d4
version, elaborated March 8th.)
Nor can this kind of issues being filtered to informal "IWG".
(and as a result it makes me appear as being an old-fashioned always-ranting
harsh person. Thanks :-))

Sure. Here was my last rant about this, and I am done with it. No need to
answer, I shall not answer!
(Final point to Kent: Yes, I noted the decomposition, and at second thought
I agree the only reasonable exit was this one; yet I prefer the move being
done by UTC or the UCD gremlins, rather than convoluted deductions.)
