Apologies if i phrased that a badly. I didn't intend to either play down 
your opinion or the importance and contributions of Lennart. I 
definitely hope he will participate and contribute to the Base WG even 
if he isn't a voting member of the committee.

After all, in my personal opinion the committee's decision should 
strongly be influenced exactly by that kind of participation and input 
from interested parties. And taking in all aspects and weighing them 
based on feasibility, resources, importance and other criteria everyone 
will have and then, as a group, come to a final decision that everyone 
can and will support.

Thanks & regards, Phil
