The principles are, indeed, important. However, they are generally
quite uncontroversial. There are vocal minorities that disagree with
them, but I think the vast majority of the community agrees with the
principles you have outlined and that has been clear from numerous
discussions over the part couple of years. We didn't really have a
problem with the principles, we had a problem with doing something
about them. It's doing something about them that you haven't helped
