At every step, you want to be fair to people whose work is intertwined with yours, and be simultaneously aware of your own self-interests and that they are not being compromised. It's difficult. Sometimes these two things are in conflict with each other. So without pushing, you try to give an option to others. If they choose something, it is their responsibility. I can't take responsibility for someone else's decisions. Even more so, since no one is taking responsibility for mine.
