Publication of three proposed new criteria: 2 Mar 2005
Submission of OVPL: 03 Jun 2005

Alex even participated in the thread that discussed the criteria!
So did you.  How can you say that Alex didn't know the rules when he
submitted his license?  That's not just wrong, it's Wrong.

Or are you arguing that we can never change the rules?  That dog won't
hunt either.
