I'm not familiar with that framework. I am aware that many statements and frameworks in this area, including those developed by emanations of the UN, have varying degrees of support and recognition, often with finely balanced nuances as to their applicability. That makes me anxious about specifically identifying one such framework within our Core Values.

Would it be possible to omit this last reference, or replace it with something that avoided this concern?
