And yet you ignore the analogy of color and colour, which is at least
as close in this case as anything we might get across languages. In
that case, they _don't_ go to the same place, and nobody is mystified.
Why? I say it's because we have learned to live with this, and that
people could learn the new rules in German too.
If I'm right, then you have a transition problem & not something
fundamental to the protocol. Opponents of PVALID for these two cases
seem not to be addressing that distinction, but if you're going to
make your case it is, I say, critical.
