[USER=175]@WB[/USER] It sums it up well for me and it was also my original understanding of the question, hence I pointed to why I think a 'No' would be better. Since you are replying I assume you have discussed the question with Mike earlier(?) and if so then I think most of the lack of clarity has been removed for me. I think we will probably still discuss what special mandates should cover, but the differences in concept still remains.
I think having ANOs involved puts us back into a position where everything will be discussed at length, taking up time and again makes us focused on ourselves instead of the world around us. Also, I simply consider the risk that someone will abuse their position lower than you do, it seems.
