I think it’s that sometimes what they don’t say matters as much as what they do.

I am under the impression the organization could still do that if it sees fit, but there is no concrete reason to expect that at this point.
The day of reckoning is a bit off in the distance, but that has not prevented plenty from weighing in with what to expect. For another example,
