Unfortunately I think I'll have to retract the above statements, and
will not be discussing several things I had pending on few subthreads,
nor I'm planning on starting any implementation work anymore. :(

With the prospects looming around of the tech-ctte being morphed into
something like a steering-ctte, and random potentially contentious
topics being redirected away into that ctte, exclusively in the name
of progress' sake, the dangers of that happening with a dicussion like
this which seems currently a bit contentious are too distressing.

This is all extremely demotivating. :`(
