I agree that it isn't at a satisfactory final state. We've benefited a 
lot from the development as a forerunner for exploring how we might 
develop customisations like this (and our discussions about the journal 
work is a result of that to a certain extent), but in the absence of an 
established process we're of course having to feel our way forward. I'm 
not quite sure the best way of getting this into the ideal relationship 
with the council. I don't think it's been a lack of will.

I have a call with Apex later this week, I'll ask them about the schema.
