I guess you missed the part where I said that our policies in general depend on voluntary
compliance, so, I do not see the technical impediments to enforcement as being sound
reason to avoid clearly expressing the will of the community.

So long as at least one instance is within the region, I would presume that would be
considered acceptable. That, however, would be a good thing to clarify in the policy
and I would like to see people in the region express their preference on the subject.
