I agree with including Malcolm's suggestion as a principle and guidance for the lawyers during the next phase of bylaw drafting. I believe his suggestion was reflected in several comments submitted by the GNSO and its constituent groups. But I also agree with Andrew...now is not the time to get bogged down on this.
