In addition, during the last : discussion period, several people said that they preferred 9 digits or : more. Can you clarify your recommendation? The original vote was for 6 digits. We discussed, and largely agreed that 7 would satisfy the concern of 'future proofing'. At least, those in favor of A did. At some point, that option mystically changed to 8 digits when it wasn't the concensus. I believe the current CVE overflords arbitrarily made that decision for us. In doing so, they scuttled Option A as a real choice. Witness, I changed my vote away from A because in moving to 8 digits, I think that despite the fixed length, it would introduce as many, if not mo more errors than Option B. Had it been 7 digits, I would have stuck with Option A most likely. At the very least, I would like it on record as to why the jump from 7 to 8 occurred, and who was responsible for that.
