For what it's worth, the person I believe you're referring to has been here
in San Juan for the Public Policy Meeting.  We have had a number of very
good conversations, both publicly, at the lunch topic tables, and in smaller
groups.  IMO outside perspectives from him and others have been very
helpful.  In addition to improving general awareness, there have also been a
couple of concrete ideas that came out of the discussions, both related to
ensuring ease of access to the transfer market and reducing unnecessary
friction between market participants.  Those should result in policy
proposals after the meeting.
