I've only just seen this as I've been away for a fortnight. I just
wanted to quickly show some appreciation for knowing when to back off
from landing something that you've worked hard on for a long time. It
shows an increasing level of maturity. It might have been tempting to
put this in and then fix it up later with SRUs if necessary, which
wouldn't have been the best way to go about things. Ideally in future we
can work towards not having to request freeze exceptions at all. :-)

So, kudos from me.
