Actually, that last reason isn't quite complete. It's not just that's  
its decided, it's that's it's already been decided, implemented and  
working like it is for a year.

Your argument about consistency and rigor being compromised is  
unqualified. I see nothing more or less consistent or rigorous about  
the current implementation versus other proposals, the rule as is is  
easy to follow and use, and as far as I know has no inconsistencies.
