This makes a great deal of sense. It will not prevent the problem
occurring but it will minimise the surprises if a similar situation
were to arrive. That being said I'm not sure what would have been
written in the AOO proposal back in July. But at least we would have
identified the likelihood that the ASF would need to distribute or the
project would need to find a distribution channel and thus pre-warned
of a potential situation arising.
