I wasn't trying to argue for more focus on conservation. I was trying to
point out that it is very difficult to maintain two separate policies for
two separate classes of organisations. Sometimes the edges get blurred and
it's hard to work out where someone fits and whether that is fair.

Does the provider/end user distinction make things easier or does it make
things harder? I suspect the latter.
