Like I said, I am not wed to the inclusion of the question re invocation of power. As they say, I was merely flying a kite as it is a question I have been frequently receiving.

To the latter question, that surely is up to the communities to propose and decide.

And a good question, indeed.

I agree they are questions people need and want answers to. Whether we should be the ones to provide them is subject to how much time we have as it can be a long diversion...

The risk is that it dilutes our credibility as impartial coordinators of the community finding its own answers.
