It's probably a mistake to say that "only the HLP know" because junior members like Byron obviously don't have copies of the Outline or the Notes. It's entirely possible that only Brian and his B-bud Kevin know the real truth. From what Byron has posted on the BBS about reading ARCs and advance copies of the books, it's obvious that they aren't submitting the manuscripts for comment, much less approval, by the other members of the HLP.
No, this is Brian and probably mostly Kevin.

For example look at the Honored Matres. Being gone so long & separated from tradition who's to say someone from Ix didn't dabble around with AI OR a Master didn't create a new kind of Face Dancer(Marty & Danial)? Whether or not these ideas were meant to be explored in D7, only the HLP know at this point & they ain't letting us peek!!
I'm not saying they didn't, just that they still remembered the proscriptions as they were doing it.
Paul of Dune was so bad it gave me a seizure that dislocated both of my shoulders and prolapsed my anus.
