Re: [ga] Concerning Workgroups
With all due respect, I fail to see your point.
I don't see this as any different than you or I presenting a proposal
to the GA upon which the GA reaches a consensus. If the GA reaches a
consensus and embraces the proposal, than it becomes the GA's
I see the substance of the proposal and the consensus of the GA as
much more important than the mechanics of how the proposal was drafted
or by whom it was drafted. I don't think the latter two make a bit of
difference in the final analysis.
