I doubt neither you nor I have misunderstood anything. I find 
a discussion on whether the terms are "dictatorial" or not, and
"unnecessary" or not entirely out of scope of a discussion that
should be or need to be had here.     (01)

The debate should be altogether technical.    (02)

The question is not "if is UCUM is to be a kind of ingredient in 
the brew ahead", but in which *additional* brew ahead.    (03)

And I am sure the majority of brewers brewing this brew here like 
to focus on content.     (04)

There should be debates on content. Then, if that debate on content
brings forth a motivation, there will be an agreement on the 
legalese. But there will not be a debate on UCUM's legalese here.    (05)
