But if you do not make a credible case that something is being
overlooked, nobody is going to waste time on your proposed process
to look for things that are being overlooked.

If you could come up with just a single credible poster-boy example
you would have a chance, but so far I have seen nothing even remotely
like it from you.

Proposing red tape commisions in the absence of evidence of their
need, is a widely recognized stalling tactic.
