I do not understand your point, especially item 2.  I submitted my
suggestions for a way forward thinking that they were largely consistent
with the principles you communicated.  I also oppose an item by item
approach to this and think it would be a terrible wast of time, but I do
believe that there are a few items that are not finished yet and that
ultimately the Council will have to vote on the total package to
determine whether or not there is a 2/3 majority as the PDP requirements
