I would beg to differ.   Accountability is a basic issue that has to be addressed.  The problem statement of the policy proposal references the RSA and its limitations.

What is useful in my opinion for objectors would be to avoid me too’s and add specific objections to the list of issues Owen has raised, and let their resolution or the authors inability to address them guide the chairs and community in reaching consensus (or not).

I hope the Chairs are now familiar enough with the patterns in our PDP to focus on the substance of our deliberations.
