Right, thanks Chris - so imagine for simplicity that the legacy policy has a set of definitions. Perhaps think of them A-Z assignments.

A = Antelope, B = Bird, C = Cat, etc.

New governance comes along defining B = Bullfrog.

Does the previous set of definitions

  • get tossed in its entirety, leaving us without A, C, D, E, etc, or
  • get edited to place "Bird" with "Bullfrog"


I *hope* that it gets edited, but don't see anything that backs up that wish. I suspect it's either tossed, or that both remain, and that partners have to understand that newer governance overrules legacy policy, and interpret B to mean Bullfrog.
