I find this to be an indication that the work of the WP7A is not done,
for we *still* lack not only consensus, but common understanding.

Something happened in the CCIR VII (forerunner of ITU-R SG7/WP7A)
between 1966 and 1970. Instead of being descriptive of the practices
of others , they became prescriptive of their practices.
