Flavors of Hepburn (was Status of Japanese requests)

People are not inclined to initiate appeals if they don't even know an action they don't agree with has been made. I see Addison's point: it matters not at all whether Addison had any inclination to appeal anything in this case or not. The RFC spells out certain procedures for a reason; Addison was elucidating the reason. The procedures should be followed; they were not.

Well, I agree on both counts.  But Addison mentioned the appeals process, which pertains to actions already taken (or not) rather than future policy; and he specifically mentioned the decision to approve.
