NOR and V are important in and of themselves (and need to be much
shorter).  Attribution has the potential to replace RS and about 2/3
of each of NOR and V, which would be good.  As a descriptive guideline
it has great potential.  I don't see it replacing the prescriptive
policies, but it certainly augments them well.
