Max Khon was the one who posted the original message in the thread. 
That message explicitly stated that moving ports and doc away from CVS
was a prerequisite for removing CVS from base. As far as I've noticed,
no one has challenged that.

I'm trying to think of a way to fit the previous paragraph into the 
bikeshed metaphor, but I'm coming up with nothing.
