I thought so too, also don't really see why we need a different set than the one already proposed but curious to hear.
I just didn't went any further yet to give more 
time for people to potentially talk about 
something not yet mentioned. I don't quite see
why we are facing something very time critical 
here so it's fine to wait a bit and give people
enough room to feel comfortable with this
whole change.
