Agree strongly with Andrew here. 

It is another example of how advocates of including the Consumer Trust stuff seem to be deaf to the concern that is being expressed. You can't just leave that language in there without a very specific context. 

If the consumer trust advocates can't accept such a basic and simple limitation on the applicability of thee AoC language, I would say that the whole AoC incorporation into the bylaws needs to be kicked to WS2.
