If the scope of dissent is limited to the momentary wrangle over 03/10 
heartburn that has some utility.

However, the scope of concern over design principles, assumptions 
about the cost of memory, of signaling within protocols, the existence 
and size of character repertoires, ... is a large ensemble of 
engineering choices, which has some other utility.

The former may be tractable to write. The latter may resist reduction 
to a a mere note, or lack all but the largest of design choices not taken.
