Yes, that seems about right. Though I originally thought I would get the proposal through the door, I knew I would not be the implementor, so the job was never going to be finished by me, anyway. Perhaps it makes sense for someone committed to do the implementation to finish it off.

The key thing for me is that there were several other proposals in this space, and I just thought there was a better design. I do think the design there is mostly good, with details to be filled in later.
