With several recent issues staff has indicated a reluctance to take
action if items were not spelled out in the NRPM.  There is at least
one proposal for the next meeting aimed at giving staff more clarity
in the NRPM so they have backing to take action.

As such I could not support this unless staff issued a strong
statement that they would still feel empowered to take on lame
servers if this policy were to pass, and section 7 were to be
removed.  I am afraid passing this proposal would leave them unwilling
to take any action.

I do think there's a deeper issue here, but for now I'm going to 
just look at the can of worms and not open it.
