Er, well, I guess it's not "wholehearted". I don't see any harm in
directing the committee *towards* known problematic areas, whereas I do
see harm in discouraging them from looking at certain areas.

Put more simply, I'm happy with Wichert's resolution, with or without
the "b." part of Ian's amendment. This is because I feel they'll get
the message of "b." whether or not it's part of the charter, but it's
harmless at worst if it is present.
