The alternative is creating more one time processes that are by
definition untested.  We could spend months more doing just that and do
it poorly, rather than actually developing proposals to be knitted
together.  The words in the current charter make clear that the key role
of the ICG is to gain consensus among the different communities, and
specifically *not* to develop the contents.  And so let's just please
manage the corner cases (there are several).
