Why do you say that?  It is both 'formal' (as described below) and
technical (i.e. this is something we should commit and work on).

What if we then think this is a bad idea?  I don't think it *is* a bad
idea, quite the opposite, but I don't see why you wouldn't have the
debate first then decide to take it into the project.

Maybe I misread the discussion -- is there an alternative being proposed
or not?  I though there was at first, but now I reread the thread it
seems not.
