On first pass, I'm still digesting but the above seems ahead of events. 
I'm being picky but this is after all the first presentation of a new 
version (2) of a proposal and not a "piece of policy".

The "It is recognized" part in particular is weird. Using expressions of 
interest in the previous rather different version as constituting 
recognition of the merits of the present document, from within the 
document presenting the new proposal for the first time is overreaching. 
Although maybe someone other than the author can recognize it as 
interesting and make the point moot.

All proposals benefit from review from legal and staff if they get far 
enough in the PDP, and from the PPML, regardless of how far they get. 
Changing the point of legal/staff engagement seems out of scope for the 

Good sales technique though. :)
