Why were those alternatives never expressed? Why were your objections
not raised at the time, and why have you never explained what you think
is wrong with it or what you think a better option would be?

What the council agreed upon is not a matter of opinion. The council
agreed to introduce EAPI control to profiles/. This was in no way
limited to "the types of atoms that can be used", and the wording and
design were very deliberately constructed *not* to limit the changes to
those kinds of things.
