Though i like to see the above statement from you and i think you have made it before any attempt to propose a third alternative has been so eloquently shot down by your co-Author many a times on this list that anyone with an alternative view that looks to modify in anyway the original text has gone quiet.

My general understanding of the objective of the PDP and the bottom up process is that we move away from a mindset of its either my way or no way to a mindset of its our collective way.  what i would call Synergy as opposed to compromise.  

There are genuine challenges introduced by this proposal that have to be addressed.  And yes the end of objective has some support from academia, but what some members on the list have been saying is how about we try to achieve the same objective through a different path.  (which your posts have suggested)

That way we bring synergy and move together with the whole community and for the good of the whole community.

Yes there is a prescribed technical process (PDP) that we are following, which is not the holy grail and where necessary and if it seems there members of the community that feel disenfranchised we need to make sure we meet and cater for their needs.    

What's the haste to push through a policy that has raised so many emotions yet we could modify it and deliver a policy for the whole community.

Which is why I appreciate the need for the policy but would find it hard to support it in its current state.
