Hi David, thanks for this message. I think the points you've raised
above are *exactly* the kinds of things that social contract should make
us discuss together. If the SC is who we are/what we want to be, what
are the ways in which we are currently failing to meet those
commitments? This is one of the ways I see this document being used.
