I would say seriously yes, although I don't doubt that some would disagree. But this is beside the point : the cabale that opposes it has historically been powerful enough to derail the multiple efforts every time. An interesting rally of strange bed-fellows.

This argument has been made over and over for the last 20+ years and still there is no go. I don't see it changing any time soon.
Although I have supported such efforts in the past and will continue to do so, this is flogging a dead horse.
