Oh i didnt say it would do any good ultimately.  My point is
upstream's perspective should be presented as early on in the
discussion as possible if there are rational reasons upstream used to
justify the change. If there aren't rational reasons, a reference to
an upstream discussion where the developers were told they are
on-crack would suffice.  Either upstream has a rational reason or they
don't, either way the discussion should happen upstream first and that
discussion cited as reference for downstream discussions.

if....
I saw some assumption making about upstream's motivation.. i didn't
see a citation reference to an upstream discussion. I'd like to see
some effort to present upstream's point of view...fairly...before we
starting etching our guesses of their intentions in stone.  Maybe they
are actually crazy.... but i'd much rather see a reference to previous
upstream discussion that gives perspective, than watch a one-sided
argument.
