Maybe the proposal itself is crazy, maybe not, but the timing of this is 
certainly crazy.

This is not a good time to be having this discussion.  We're just about 
to start week R-8.  The final release for non-client libraries is at 
R-6, the final release for client libraries and feature freeze is at 
R-5.  So there is (should be) a lot of stuff happening in the projects 
right now, that may preclude people from being as active in this 
discussion as they might wish.  Plus, I don't know about y'all, but the 
current pandemic is making simple day-to-day living more stressful on me 
than it was a few weeks ago.

What I'm saying is that I'd appreciate clarification on the timeline for 
this change.  This is the kind of thing that could use discussion at the 
PTG.  If the point of Thierry's patch is to prepare for discussion at 
the PTG, then that's great, I personally will revisit it at R-1, and be 
ready to have a productive discussion.  But I think this is not a good 
time to make the usual "silence is assent" inference to a proposal 
floated on the mailing list.
