Keep in mind that this AC rule didn't come about until after the AC was
presented with a draft of the new PDP.  Most of the AC felt it would be a
good change, and adopted the standing rule in order to implement it before
the new PDP came into effect.  A number of us were concerned to make sure
that the rule did not prevent AC members from expressing their opinions on
petitions, which is why it was written as it was.

Thanks for speaking up.  I'm not on the PDP committee, but I know they are
looking for community input, so  I would encourage anyone else with opinions
on how the new PDP should work to speak up as well.
