Of perhaps some relevance is the statement in the recent Board report 
saying that they are looking at the issue raised by the GAC on how to 
ensure that non-community applicants fulfill their intentions 
outlined in their applications. Despite many such demands in the 
past, the final AG did not hold applicants to their intent 
implementations (as it does for community applications). The GAC does 
seem to have been able to catch the Board's attention on this.
