This is a great idea for a workstream


Candidly, I think its a touch muddled, ie an idealized version might split it into 2 or perhaps 3 separate parts. But IMO more important to get this practice started – even if imperfect – and we can improve as we go. That’s one reason this proposal is only for one month.
