I can't imagine this being a board issue. If it were sent to the board
for some decision, I think our response would be to go to fesco,
infra, releng, qa, etc and ask a lot of questions, which really (in my
mind at least) means that those groups should be setting the criteria,
(probably with fesco leading the charge there) since they are the
actual people/groups that have to do work based on this.
