On the one hand, I support the proposal. Whether or not there is a
reason to allow something is not the appropriate standard here. If we
can't show good cause why something should not be allowed then it
should be. I mean seriously, God forbid someone blows their nose
without first explaining to us why they want to.

On the other hand, the AC paying attention to and _respecting_
minority dissent within the community is long overdue. I don't
understand the dissent on this one. But since it exists, what's rush
to get the policy on the books? Let's talk about it some more first.
