Right, but as I say, it's not protocol work that should drive whether you
want to reapply or not. It's whether you're interested in managing and/or
promoting that work - or even just having a say in how it's done.

Technical knowledge, or even skill, is *not* a prerequisite. Just having
useful input, and/or putting in the grunt work of getting various things
