I believe you are right that the draft can be made clearer. It is a 
mistake, however, to think that it is sufficient to "send a strong 
enough signal" to the volunteers in the Data Working Group. Yes, they 
are unpaid volunteers with family, work and other free-time activities. 
They are not servants of the members or of the community. It is much 
much more likely that your wish for change will be respected if you 
actually suggest a change (wording).

The board/DWG played to ball to us, the members. Now it is up to us what 
happens with the draft. I assume there will be a vote on the AGM, but 
the DWG can decide to change the draft before the vote. Now is a really 
good time to suggest changes.

Regards, Nils
