Agree with Paul on this. I think it's time for people to stop overreacting to this kind of statement. If the bottom up process supplies a few alternatives and our group simply tries to fit them together optimally it doesn't mean we are seizing centralized power and becoming Stalinists.
If we invite singular and non-negotiable proposals from the communities, we might find ourselves without a single workable solution; so my thought was that if alternatives are available which are satisfactory to the communities concerned, then these should be spelt out so that the ICG can find a better final solution. This would indeed involve making judgements and accepting/rejecting alternatives, but I didn't see those things ruled out by the Charter (item iii).
