12 Which brings us back to my initial question.
14 Why is PMS considered so important that it might have a deadline
15 imposed upon it by the Council? As far as I'm aware, nothing like this
16 has been done before.
18 Now, if there's a good reason for the Council imposing a deadline,
19 there's a pretty decent chance that said deadline will be met. If the
20 Council can justify why it needs PMS done in a hurry, PMS can end up
21 being ready within a very short timeframe. If the Council can't justify
22 the deadline, it will end up being done within a not so short
23 timeframe, since all the PMS authors are working upon several things
24 and won't make PMS top priority without good reason.
