Yes, and some time in early April next year you will see Anne still
writing such sentences because if she makes an exception for one she
will never be able to deny it to another and another and yet another.
Where do you want to draw the line? Right behind you?
I wonder why everybody is so fast pointing to "community" when they

That said, I am pretty sure that good ideas which did not make it in
time to the specs will later be subject to review anyway. They are
just not part of the official specs now.
