My personal take on it. Is rather that we mostly all agree the council
does not have the power to modify GLEP-39 as is. If the previous
councils altered GLEP-39 and there are no challenges to it, then I don't
think the existing one is going to revert those changes (more so if we
admit that the existing one should leave it alone)
