Sounds hopeful… Time will tell…

Any news like this is good news, but words such as “acceptable” and “reasonable” are known as legalese.
They’re subjective terms meaning that what’s reasonable and acceptable all depends on the assessor and what side of bed he got out of.
So, prepare for the worst, but hope for the best.
