It certainly is a valid and important issue to be able to restore a deployment with rank isomorphism. Gladly the requirement that this scenario would be supported has been accounted for from day 1. It is one of the simple use cases that is already deployed by many users. I’ll present code snippets on monday.

Aurélien will also be presenting slides during the FT plenary time demonstrating sample use cases. We haven't yet come up with something that we'll be excluding with the current proposal.

I have to say that in some way I totally missed the point that this is intended to “be it”, so need to carefully re-evaluate the proposal in that light. My main concern is that the standard is supposed to provide a means for supporting a broad range of FT methodologies on top of this. Need to make sure that some of the approaches people do want to take are being blocked. Also, concern had been expressed that the resulting behavior will prevent many users from using it, so need to talk through these
