Thank you, Mathieu, for this assurance.

I do regret joining this discussion late, and I'm sure that some of the points that I'm raising have already been discussed.  I do wish that the history of this process had been different.

Not being familiar with the early stages of the CCWG's work, I take my clues from both the content and the tone of what I heard at the several meetings I attended in Buenos Aires as well as posts to the list.

Thanks for the reference to the earlier document.

There is often not a single way to "act in the global public interest", which can not be reduced to a set of engineering rules or equations (as much as I personnally would like it to).

In that case, what should a Board member do?  Which is the higher authority according to the CCWG's thinking?
