it's not a policy change

everything outside is
guidance not policy. the document in question is CTR not RTC.

so, anyone feeling sufficiently strongly about these changes should either

 * -1 the commit and force a vote on this matter
 * propose a change in policy which renders this guidance obsolete

IMO the incubator needs to shift to operate on the basis of a set of
recorded rules. in particular, every new policy change VOTE should be
about a set of concrete changes to the policy document
