I oppose this policy. I do not agree that there was consensus that the
existing 4.10 was potentially damaging. There was consensus that
the proposal in question which attempted to carve off a little piece of
pony for all the various stakeholders was not an improvement over
the existing 4.10.

This proposal is far too little far too late.
