Hi Jeremy,

Unfortunately, in the set of concerns, the substance was lost. So recapping
from the earlier threads:


Summarize our early set of discussion, with the substance at


Note that in these messages, the specific proposal was to keep the
expectation at 24 hours (SHOULD), the requirement at 7 days (MUST), and
require a disclosure (MUST) if it takes more than 24 hours. In the
discussion ensuing, the updated ballot changed it to requiring disclosure
if more than 7 days - e.g. a BR violation - but that wasn't the original
proposal, nor the original concern.

Does that help clarify?
