Martin -

The original proposal and this draft both seemed straightforwards (and
easily supportable) to me.

Can you please articulate in more detail what your objections are, both in
theory and in the textual changes/details?

I honestly do not currently understand what your issue(s) are.  I would
very much like to - My worry with anything people are encouraging to
fast-track is that a rapid consensus will fast-track something with a
poorly understood flaw.  If you think you see the flaw(s) please call them
out so we can have wider proper review.

Thank you.
