As a shepherd for this proposal, I would like to solicit community feedback
on the proposed text.

Aside from the general support/against.. some things to consider:

Do you concur with or have any comment on the problem statement?

If you support the problem statement, do you support removing section 8.2
as the correct path for remediating this conflict?  Do you have other
suggestions for how to handle this?

If you are opposed, what concerns do you have about implementing this
