That was the scope proposed in the original NWIP (N 1414).  The ballot to 
approve that project failed.  So I do not believe that we are limited to 
the original scope.  In fact, the failure of that ballot suggests that the 
scope may need to be adjusted and/or clarified.

My understanding is that we're now doing a "stage 0" activity, where one 
possible outcome is a new NWIP proposal with a new scope.  The terms of 
this study period activity is defined by N 1494.
