Despising the work on *requirments* will not help the future WG moving
forward. The work of the small team before there is a WG is
questionable because there are many wrong assumptions (for instance
that we should follow ICANN's fear of the so-called "confusable
characters"). Trying to put this discussion under the carpet is the
wrong way to go.

"Where do we go? America or Asia? For a short trip in a big hotel or
camping in the countryside?"

"I does not matter, let's move, we'll see later, the important thing
is to move, no matter the direction."
