The problem is only solved by a decision if the decision is "stay put".

In the other case, someone has to cleanup the fallout. Neither tooling 
nor user projects will magically adjust just because there was a Word.

seriously considered _at all_ that late in the process. Trivial additions
have been rejected for months because we are in feature freeze and 
now _that_.
