replacements as well.  As you know, neither the DT nor the Council ever
discussed the possibility of SGs getting to put forward more names than
their counterparts in any context, the whole point was uniformity and

Whatever..Hopefully someone will not cite this down the road as a precedent
for endorsing multiple names at the front end etc.
