I think using the list for discussion is what most of us are used to, so
let's do that...

Does this need to be in the statues at all? If we can keep it out of the
statues, that'll make it a lot easier to change it if need be.

This I think needs to be in the statues.

Same with these two.

If #1 can be kept outside the statues, so can this one. 


The way I see it, getting the stuff that needs to be in the statues done
quickly is the most important part. The less we can "lock up" in the
statues, the easier it will be for us to adapt to what the member wants
over time.
