Yeah, I agree... but as I already mentioned in my last mail in this
thread, I kinda lean towards the idea of not integrating this very
specific kind of request with the policy decision framework, something
that doesn't seem to be the most popular option here :-)

So, and sorry for turning the whole thing upside down, would you mind
elaborating a bit more on why you think so strongly that we should
integrate it there?

Perhaps I'm missing something and such an explanation could help, I
think, to get some consensus :-)

Thank you all for your valuable feedback,
