Glossy :)

The EU has been going this route for some time now. Despite or because of it's infamous bureaucracy they do understand reasonably well the various ramifications; however, it moves slowly and the various constituent governments hate to give up power and information is power. Regrettably, it is currently the best hope for sensible logical rules and acceptable behaviours for others to emulate going forward. Yes, it's that sad.
