I believe your suggestion of tabling a proposal essentially sight
unseen constitutes bad precedent.  It should be tabled if it is found
to be technically undesirable after careful analysis.  I've pointed out
some problems with it.  Do these problems matter, or would you have us
not pursue the matter merely to avoid hurting my feelings?  That would
be terrible.  Please don't do that.  We haven't heard from Sarathy on
this yet.  I really don't find it's something worth jumping up and down
about.  I am not committed to pushing through any particular agenda here,
or any precise implementation.  I do think there are concerns that should
be duly considered before any commitment is made.  I would be delighted
to hear that the things that appear worrisome are no grave matter.
