I believe you are incorrect about the commonalities of our technical
knowledge having any influence on whether we share a common (often
cultural) understanding of what is or is not going to constitute

However, this is getting us off topic. I won't continue to debate this

To repeat what has been said several times in this thread:

This is not expected to be a dramatic change of anything. The community has
already been holding itself to exactly the kind of standard we are putting
into the document for many years.

This is a *preventative* measure and not about specific examples, so
arguing their have not been examples doesn't make much sense.
