Allen, you're asking me to prove a negative, and on your terms, and 
with no information.  Surely you're not serious.  Since you haven't 
specified how any such a proposal... and we haven't even gotten to 
discussing a particular proposal yet... breaks anything, or what it 
breaks, how am I supposed to tell you how to fix it?

While you certainly have the authority to confuse "won't" with 
"can't" within your own company and product, if you choose, I really 
think you owe the TC a more explicit and reasonable explanation of 
what the problem is if you expect others to be persuaded.

The TC "can NOT take those valuable comments" [emphasis added]?  I'm 
pretty sure you meant to write "can take those valuable comments...", 
else I really don't understand what we're doing here.

Assuming that, why can't we take the comments from NDSAmerica and PPW 
and try to address them in a normative way?  Should we dismiss their 
comments because they've been unable to test what we've not yet 
specified?  That seems a bit circular...
