You got it; you should advocate for whatever policy
you feel important, but realize if you only work in
a regional context then other regions policies may
not be complementary. When we are able to get common
agreement on goals across regions, the benefit is
larger (but it can be very hard to achieve)
fyi - You are still mixing private and public replies; I don't
mind it under the circumstances, but unchecked it may
give folks pause before replying to your private msgs...
