It is not without reason motivations are considered ouf of scope for the
discussion. In order to facilitate any constructive dialogue,
we were asked to assume good faith, which in this case means that whatever
reasons people have to participate in drafting the document and endorsing
it are valid, however right or wrong one feels these reasons might be.

Doing otherwise would likely lead to accusations going back and forth with
emotions escalating, opinions hardening, and nothing productive being achieved 
in the process.
