You're right John. Bill, I apologize for calling you a smart ass.

The draft describes desirable states, not a belief system. Bill
defined the former as goals and the latter as principles. Bill then
cleverly and deliberately mischaracterized my comment that, if that's
so, the draft should be relabelled with the correct word: goals.

Clearly I was wrong to view Bill's 'ditching principles' response as a
smart-ass remark. And even if it was, it was unforgivably rude for me
to have said so.
