Given that there will be effectively a "new board" after Saturday I 
think that it's only fair to let them get their feet under the table 
first, but there clearly will be pressure from the community once they 
have done that to release the more comprehensive statement that was 
promised in 
https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk/2018-December/081781.html .

Without knowing on what basis this board decision to create an exception 
to the OSM norm was reached it's difficult to generalise from it and 
understand how it might apply in other edge cases.

Best Regards,

Andy (a member of the DWG, but sending this in a personal capacity)
