Of course it is.  Google "démarche with a time limit".  (I should add that
this characterization is my own, and that Michael and other signatories
are not responsible for it.)  We want them to assign the code, and we
ask them to assign the code.  If they say and do nothing, that's an
indication of how seriously they take the matter.  If they put us off,
that's a different indication.
