I think "will the person who objects to my work the most be able to find a
fault with my fix?" in the policy on obviousness is clear enough. A
policy decision on what is or is not part of a language extension can't be
obvious, and nor can determining subtle questions of exactly what the
definition of some internal interface is or should be.
