I think that the panel of experts idea probably isn't going to take hold.

I think it's going to be staff discretion aided by guidance from the BoT.

There just wasn't much support and a number of concerns surrounding
the implementation of a panel.

The problem with the existing 4.10 language, Andrew, is that staff
has basically said it is too open ended and wouldn't really give them
the tools to narrow the field at all. The escape clauses are there
for that reason, so that staff still has discretion to approve things
not considered in the policy text.

To clarify, the second clause is "other transitional technologies
NOT envisioned at the time of this proposal".

It's an attempt to prevent the policy from penalizing innovation in
that area.

Look for some updates to 116 in the near future which I hope will
greatly expand the support base for it.
