Great news! Given that this was probably the most polarising proposal ever, I am very impressed with the patience and professionalism the core team has shown in handling the situation and ultimately converging on an elegant solution — all that under oppressive deadline! A barrel of whiskey would be more then appropriate :)

> This proposal was far better received by the community than previous versions of the proposal, and the “first design” was the favored path within it. However, there were some concerns raised about the complexity of the model, stemming from non-obvious combinations like “open private”. As such, the core team has requested that the proposal be revised to make “open” function as another access control specifier. “open” is now simply “more public than public”, providing a very simple and clean model.
