The point of the thread I've felt to be slightly different, that's where we
are yes - it's the current state of play.
I'd rather discuss can we enact change or work together as a collective to
find a suitable a generally agreed BCP middle ground? RIPE-532 seems to be
that BCP middle ground, yet there is disagreement around it's definition
and application - the result being what you've described.
