Therein lies the problem with using terms like "reasonable" in a legal
document. It's a subjective term, and there are plenty of definitions
that are going to work for some people and not others. Arguing over
what is and what is not reasonable is a wasted exercise: The best we
can do it put the issue to a vote and go with the opinion expressed by
the voting majority.
