I would tend to agree. There are many flaws that mean a full review
cycle seems somewhat unnecessary and would, at the very least, take
time and energy from this list's participants from other worthy

I would therefore gently and kindly suggest to the Submitter that they
withdraw their license from consideration, feeling free to resubmit a
modified version in the future if they so wished.

Best wishes,
