I notice that this is now appears to be a foregone conclusion, despite 
the fact that the one time we were made aware of the will of the 
populace, the majority did *not* want this change.  So this change will 
be forced on us even though we don't want it?  Why is that?  Who made 
this decision and what was the justification?  Shouldn't that be 
disclosed before we begin discussing changes to Corpora?

If the majority of the populace does not want this change, why are we 
making it?  If the majority does not want this change, why are we even 
discussing the language that would be used to implement it? 
Implementation language is only needed if a change is to be made. 
Again, who is dictating this change, and under what justification?
