And my point is that the board would kick it back to the VP to assimilate
all of the necessary arguements pro and con (including Roy's, and yours,
and maybe even Andy's) and present them concisely to the board.  It has
wasted far too many cycles this year on this distraction, it needs action-
able items (e.g. ask infra to create list Q for legitimate reasons A, B, C
over legitimate objections X, Y, Z).  Geir might be shot down, but at least
the issues would be codified in policy either way.  The board would also
probably push back such a request until the who-what-why-how of NDA summary
is available at http://a.o/jcp/.

Your concern is well noted.
