I take your point, but I understood anecdotally that the large end of
the range of reports were getting big enough to cause concern to those
handling them daily. I guess I'll have to wait for somebody with direct
knowledge to speak up - it isn't something I'm seeing with my own

So first up, backup the anecdotal suggestion that there's a need based
on the observed growth of report sizes. Second, an expression of
willingness to implement.

Sure, I didn't mean to suggest we'd reinsert something without
discussion - let alone something that hadn't been tested/vetted
properly. That's real, substantive work for the WG.
