I'm glad we agree about its current state, whatever the reasons. 

While I wish I could do something about them, I can't at all in some 
cases or quickly in others. No matter what, it's going to be a slow 
process to change them, and I'd like to keep things like this from 
blocking on that. I'm hoping to fix some of the council-related issues 
with an updated GLEP 39 (WIP), but even being on the council doesn't 
help much in making others focus on productive issues.
