Still isn't quite as carefully crafted as I'd like to see. Not a lawyer, but
I have sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much experience in being advised
by lawyers... that I am careful about words like "is there a possibility"...
learned a long time ago from a number of lawyers that "there is always a
possibility" if one looks long enough.

I think we need to ask for another round of edits to tighten up and clarify
what the question is and note that the question is related to the actual
recommendation that is before the Council, not a wide ranging general

Perhaps some more of the lawyers on the TF, or the Council can join in the
"crafting" of the question.... thus I've copied David Fares who is one of
the BC reps, who is a lawyer. He doesn't have posting privileges, so should
he want to contribute, I'll provide his inputs as  BC inputs.

This looks good to me.
