To be clear, we're not avoiding it.  We're talking about
it.  I'm just really not that sure that it's useful to
identify "obstructive individuals" as a problem - to me that
feels a little like identifying the considerable distance
from Ithaca to Vienna as a problem.  Human behavior is
pretty much of a given, I think, and it's how well we
cope with it that is or is not a problem.  It's really not a
question of being candid, but of keeping the document
focused and producing something that we can act upon.

I'm going to create a ticket in the RT database derived from
your initial post, but while I agree there's a big problem
here I still don't agree with your exact formulation of it.
