I've created a new section in the wiki called "Considerations".
This will be a respository for the information and arguments that were
considered in each of the major decisions that we make in designing this
system. I'll start creating sub-pages to this section, one for each
topic that we've given consideration to, as the topics come up. The
general thought is that attempting to distill the entire email archive
into such a section would be extremely time consuming and result in a
section cluttered with things that nobody really cares about. With this
in mind, I'll only create pages as they become useful.

Everyone is encouraged to create pages for their personal pet topic of
concern, and everyone else is encouraged toss in their two bits. The
only restrictions are to keep it in the format described in the main
Considerations page, and keep each page on topic.
