Wording of the Virtual Webhosting Standards Policy

Hello there,
This whole writing back and forth thing gets very confusing.  At this point,
I feel we need to get some clear suggestions by the people concerned (those
writing in), as to exactly what they want the policy to say.  This way we
can make direct comments on a proposed document and hopefully get something
agreed upon, voted on, and enacted.

I believe this point was raised at the open mike during both previous
meetings.  I'm simply mentioning it again.  The organizations that have to
reallocate space don't appreciate being in an uncertain situation either.

Presumably by altering the wording to better correspond to the consensus
reached at the meetings.  I was objecting to the wording primarily on those
