Tom, is quite a long ticket.  I've
read through the whole thing and I don't see anything that looks like a
justification other than "The spec says they're required."  That doesn't
seem like much of a justification to me.

Could you perhaps re-pose the justification?

At this point I still think we should be forgiving.
