Are there any further comments on this policy before we discuss this in the Policy SIG meeting tomorrow?

To update, I believe those who have expressed support for the vserion 4
draft as it stands (with "reasonable technical justification") are:
- Dean Pemberton
- Mark Foster
- Randy Whitney
- Aftab Siddiqui
- Terry Manderson
- Yi Chu

I am still only aware of Terence Zhang desiring a change of the draft to
more explicit criteria.

Would anyone else like to comment on the proposal draft (v4) before the
meeting, one way or the other?

Thanks, David
