OK - I've endorsed one of Naill's ideas in the form of the above
a) I think it's simple to implement.
b) if it doesn't work it's simple to retract.
c) We've had the normal back and forth about it - with the usual number
of tangents and side tracts and I don't see a strong argument against at
least trying it out.
So let's try this out.
The only thing is I don't have any idea who has the authority to
implement this. The Review Wizard could just start implementing it on
his own - though I'm not sure he'd be comfortable with that. So I'll
guess that its the steering committee. I'll send them a copy.
