Right.  Notice that the proposal already left the Evolution Working
Group for Core.  Notice also that at the last meeting in Mont
Tremblant, Jaakko Järvi spent a fair amount with his time in Core
working on word-smithing.  The last version of the paper available in
the mailing has gone several stages of iteration of word-smithing with
core -- without having the set of semantics changed.
