Sorry for the late response! Just got finished up with organizing the
MySQL User Conference and then going on to our own internal conference.
I thought about this more (and as quoted above) am fairly not sure that
this is needed.

discussing the issues on the list.
Now that our own internal conference is complete, I will work on
getting the next major draft out.
