I think formally it probably needs an Ack from Wei or Ian?

I usually give this sort of thing (removals etc) a little longer than
normal to give more of a chance for objections, although the counter to
that is that once this is committed it could just as easily be reverted the
next day as in 6 months time if someone turns up with a good reason it
shouldn't have been nuked.
