You're saying that the committee is involved in careful and
thoughtful innovation, which "we" should appreciate more. I'm saying that
the committee should not innovate, it should merely observe the fact that a
given library has established itself as the defacto standard in a given
domain, then rubber-stamp it in the standard without changes.
