David's example doesn't violate anything of the sort. I think he's simply
misunderstanding (or proposing an alternative to) what you want --changelist
David seems to be thinking of it as a subtractive filtering mechanism, as in
"Narrow the list of targets of this operation down to only those which are
in the changelist FOO". You are proposing it as additive: "Add to the list
of explicitly mentioned targets those items which are in the changelist FOO."
