Ah, I am clearly misremembering both parts. I must have incorrectly
connected you mentioning the idea with you repeating it from someone
else. (I was very much present at your talk although I admit I did not
  rewatch it in order to write my message earlier today.)

I am also clearly misremembering a discussion on the actual merits of
the idea from our summit meetings. But it is of no real consequence,
and you would surely be 'allowed' to change your mind in any case. :)

Oof, I am sorry to hear that. It will likely be of no real help to
you, but like Guillem implied in his own email, this was not my
intention. In fact, it was quite the opposite — I was trying to ensure
that your views were accurately represented. I suspect I share much of
the frustration that underlies this.
