There is no change of policy and there is no reason for the council to
be involved. He can change the eclass how he needs and that's the end
of the story. The council does not need to be involved at every
potential crossroad. The council only needs to be involved when a
potential technical issue arises. No technical issue, proceed ahead.
No need for the council to road block.

e.g. if its not in the "rule" book you can do it.

This is vastly different then your interpretation of the council's
mandiate, Petteri, which is "if its not in the rule book go ask
permission".

Hence my point of saying let developers develop instead of telling
them they need to ask permission and wait 4 weeks while it gets on an
agenda list everytime they want to commit to the tree or blow their
nose or boot up their computer.
