Uh, we can live with what exactly?

The topic was whether it would be ok to have Carsten Dominik pass on
maintenance of refTeX basically to the AUCTeX team and have RefTeX's
primary CVS moved as a module to AUCTeX CVS, while keeping the update
process of Emacs' builtin RefTeX as it currently is (namely refreshing
the CVS with stable changes and fixes while Emacs is in freeze).

While I tend to interpret your mail as you being ok with that
approach, I don't find that interpretation sufficiently unambiguous to
be sure.
