Yep, it is an easy objection. :)  We could do that if the WFD would be
interested in working on this.  I suspect that this is very low priority
for WFD. I would also say that when and if it becomes a higher priority
for national and international deaf organizations, then we should
certainly invite them into the process. I am simply leery of waiting for
things to trickle down through the organizational processes of national
and international organizations before it is ready for our use. I think
this kind of standardization is important to the process. If we design
things right and look for neutral and respectful solutions, it should be
acceptable ... and if it ends up not being acceptable, it should be
relatively easy to change.

Just my thoughts,
