Dear All,

I'd like to add that the VETO function is meant to start a discussion 
for reformulation of the proposed solution, typically related to 
controversial evidence, lacking evidence, a proposal for a more 
effective solution, or violation of modelling principles, as mentioned 
below. After due discussion, the issue can be put for e-mail vote in a 
different form, or will be discussed in face-to-face meetings.

I may remind you that all crm-sig members are entitled to call for an 
e-mail vote, if the issue has been presented in a decidable form.

Thank you George for setting this up!
