Let’s recognize that the policy is unnecessary and the RSA is currently sufficient as it is.

What truth would that be in this case?

The truth that this policy is unnecessary, duplicative, and potentially harmful?
The truth that the community has repeatedly rejected this policy and it is unlikely to come to consensus?
The truth that the authors changes to between the previous version and the current version are minimal and fail to address the majority of objections?
The truth that many of the objections to this proposed policy have existed almost as long as the policy and still remain unaddressed by the authors?
