It's not just about the verbiage. If nb has no process to disseminate or 
to ensure eneryone's buy-in, then the words don't matter.

The purpose of revisiting these docs, as a group, as a community, is to 
restore community connection to, and sense of ownership of the docs. i 
suggest instituting rituals and processes to keep the docs as living 
docs, to perpetually restore community connection to, and sense of 
ownership of the docs. daily and annually.

also consider that turnover and new members has produced a community who 
did not participate in the creation of those statements. if all members 
are required to promise to abide by the docs, that might change things.

So, i'm suggesting two processes:

     -an annual community-wide refresh of the docs

     -a consistent new-member process to connect new members to the docs. 
Maybe include adding their own personal "what nb means to me" to a wiki 
and/or wall.
