I can see how putting these items out of scope of that work does simplify
things. I hope we can take a middle ground in terms of assumptions and yet
get a good improvement. For example, by allowing for the 'override' but not
attempting to roll back and keeping the element 'exempted' once a value has
been overridden. One tool that we do have that may make it more reasonable
is that we do have access and visibility into the instance specific data.
