"does anyone disagree?"

One of the fundamental criticisms of the IAHC process was
"we are important. We were not consulted. We do not care 
whether the proffered solution is good, bad or indifferent.
We object simply because we were not part of the process
of creating the solution."

Blasting waway as Vic suggests sounds like me, 24 months ago
on the IAHC.

I am now a sadder and wiser person.

I'd like to learn from that experience and suggest that the stakeholders
are a broad bunch of folk which includes public policy and regulators,
lawyers, major industry players, consumer groups...and they all need
to have their desire for 'involvement' folded in somehow into the

yes this makes it slow and tedious. Yes NOIE are involved. Yes
many folk are involved.

But thats consensus politics - like it or not!

i.e. its not just the Good Idea that counts -its getting everyone to
buy into the Good Idea and have their say in the formation
of the Good Idea that gains acceptance.

kind regards,
