I understand.  When it comes to open item regulation, the aspects that keep me
up at night are completeness and fairness.  Minimizing list traffic about
non-compliant open items is third priority at best.  Furthermore, it takes an
expensive and subjective calculation to determine whether a policy-violating
open item is progressing well.  I will keep an eye out for minor policy
violations that I can ignore cheaply and fairly.
