I understand your frustration. We can't go around and around on these 
issues forever. I think we're having a good discussion here and that a 
bit more patience will result in a clear understanding of the costs and 
benefits of publish+configure, which we can document for all time in 
XEP-0163 version 1.1. That will enable us to reach consensus and move 
forward, where "consensus" may not be something that pleases everyone 
but that will be consistent with our design guidelines. At the least, I 
think everyone here is working in good faith and personally I'm 
committed to finding a solution.
