I'm late saying this. I think your proposal is thorough, workable and
well stated. Thank you – you went to places I am afraid to even dare
think, so inculcated am I.

I am not sure I have seen anything compelling in the thread to
challenge or add to what you have said.

I'm afraid I have nothing to add but support because it's exactly what I
would like to see happen.
