And all of that is very important.

I would also like to add the point that we need the contracts to be ready
enough that are in principle in good shape and broadly acceptable, but we
*do* have a public comment period which enables further adjustment as
needed, from CWG and others. If people can think about their further
comments also in this light, that would be helpful.
