Nothing in the definition of BCPs require that it be limited to
covering existing practice.
Well, other than the naive assumption that something called a Best
Current Practices would in fact document best current practices.
But since this argument seems to be all about proving that we've
followed the official process rather than about publishing something
accurate and useful rather than speculative and misleading, who cares?
Now that I understand the rules, I plan to publish all of my
experiments as BCPs.
