[CCWG-ACCT] The GAC made me do it

We came to this because no SO/AC must be able to introduce a
challenge against a ccNSO initiated PDP pertaining to ccNSO policy.

And that, much weaker than I like, is not negotiable.

I don't see howe we can speak of long established equilibrium, when
long established equilibrium makes a difference between SO and AC
which this CCWG seems to want to remove.

If the BOARD however wishes to retain the long established
equilibrium between the functions of SO (MAKING Policy) and AC
(ADVISING ON Policy) it has my full support.
