The presentation of the policy would be accompanied by the promise to
re-evaluate after 6 and then 12 mos. as it says in my original post.
Given that this change is not accompanied by significant negative impacts,
then a proposal to lower the boundary another bit would ensue with another 6
and 12 month review...etc. I personally do not feel that the codification
of such in the policy is appropriate.
