Interesting.  What are your thoughts on using this approach for our current discussion?  

As I said, staying abreast of all the threads where these discussions are occurring is difficult
at best and I feel like some are treating certain ideas as foregone conclusions because the

entire community hasn't been given the time and opportunity to engage without joining  
the melee.  In the end, I imagine we will end up compromising, but I think it is important
 
to take a step back and let others propose a few strategies without it adding to the current
frenzy.
