This was exactly what I was arguing against -- the break up of the 
proposals is increasingly becoming as contentious vs. uncontentious. It 
should be "related items" based instead. And, no, "these are the minimum 
set of things I need" is not a good definition of related items, as 
that's a very subjective definition.

Why are we so afraid of adding items that we feel the Forum will not 
like? It's easy enough to get a straw vote and drop something before the 
final vote.

Second call to Bill/Rajeev -- we need some changes here.
