Re: [council] RN-WG SoW
I'm just telegraphing my vote. If the WG can't make sense of the patchwork, then I'll be inclined to perpetuate the status quo - primarily because the incongruous patchwork has gotten us this far and I'm not sure what a blind change would get us. If the rec's do have some sense to them, that's another story, but when I hear things like throwing out the status quo without any justification behind it, I tend to get worried.

Continuing reservations in one part of the namespace, but ceasing them in others will create customer confusion - not between strings, but in policy exemptions. Let's try to avoid creating a patchwork.
