Ole,

Three IAOC members posted notes that used various approaches to dismiss 
the request I placed, with one of the approaches saying "let others do 
it".  So in terms of the specific proposal that I made, the response 
really was a de facto decision (by the IAOC and therefore Secretariat) 
to do nothing.

Telling others that they should go work on a task is not a "decision to 
do something".

Given how casually the Secretariat took on the considerable extra tasks 
of event planning for Bits-n-Bites, the very modest details involved 
here don't look nearly as daunting as you seem to be implying.
