Reasonable. I think the original draft of this list reflects very
strongly the experiences during the 2.0 process- where the primary
coordination issue was UI/a11y conflict, and the others you've cited
were minimal if they came up at all. Does that clarify why it is their
explicitly? Do you think it is worth keeping as a distinct item, or
should that entire line be dropped? [I don't want to specify 'coordinate
with every single other team GNOME has' ;) ]
