On re-reading that last paragraph of mine, i feel that my
intent is not properly conveyed. So a re-write ...

We need to go to a certain level of effort to develop the
proposal. We need to express the bones of a W-W-W-W-H outline.
Included in each section are some "impacts" and "implications",
still just the bones.

I am concerned that our process will drag on, so we need to
get the vote happening soon and then add flesh to our "method"

Today i added a ToDo item to the Wiki and linked it to
Diana's W-W-W-W-H outline email.
