That would be a more elegant situation, IMO.

This makes sense to me.

My point was to have the options written down and have interested people
explicitly say why a particular point is valid or not, rather than just
bluntly dismissing someone's point as being a non-solution without
providing rationale.

As for the "here and now", I don't personally perceive this issue as
urgent as I use GNOME only.  But I could imagine that some people do.
