Speaking only for myself, I'm still digesting the responses. There are
some very valid points made and I'm trying to figure out the best way
to incorporate some of the ideas.
Some valid holes were poked into it (not least because the proposal
really is about two different things - ring policy and bundling as a

Also, I got pulled into some high-priority stuff at $DAYJOB, so my
