Well, if that is the case, I'd change "my suggestion" (although I
didn't mean to suggest anything concrete).  If this was needed
and/or was useful only during the defvelopment of the remainder of
the series, and if this is known to be a half-hearted change that is
not meant to be useful as a general solution, then let's not take
the main part of the series a hostage to this step; rather, we
should drop this change and leave it to another series that is
willing to do it right.  It would save both author's and reviewers'
time if we did so.
