I like it fine as a GLEP42 news item, I hate it as a news item on the 
homepage for sure. Seems to me that pointing to the website for 
plaintext docs like this is kinda defeating the point of these news 
items. It's certainly more news rather than a long-term useful document, 
because at some point the change will happen, and then things are just 
the way they are.
