Where strong and clear mentorship existed the IPMC has worked just fine.
Where absent the IPMC has failed. This is the core of my concerns.

Once the proposal explicitly addresses or prevents the circumstances in
which strong mentorship is lacking I'll be happy.

I wish people would stop arguing with me as if I am saying the IPMC should
stay, can people please address my expressed concern, rather than someone
welded concerns.
