I think this vote tries to cover too much ground in a single vote. I 
would prefer to see a simple vote of "Do not merge PR#14759" *possibly* 
followed up by separate votes on what our own policies should be for 
provider implementations, and what we should or should not encourage 3rd 
parties to do.
