Yes, but I think the difference of opinion is not the end goal, rather
just how much we think we can handle right now.  Personally, I think
of these certification steps as a milestone towards meeting more
iron-clad expectations.  I think you are right that we need to keep
the larger goal in mind, but I agree with Luis that we need to start
smaller or risk getting unrealistic (for now) requirements that do
more damage than good.  :)
