I completely agree. My real hope here is that these type of conversations are now able to be had out in the open. SInce #wpcs
I have felt a real change in "openness" or the perception of openness among those higher up in the WP hierarchy.
This may not have a positive outcome for it's specific aims, but I believe it will have a positive outcome on the whole in terms of not holding the "self-evident truths" to be "dogmatic law".
I am hopeful :)
