I see in too many instances,its already been done ,or "changed" at a whim,when purpose arises..........
People - politicians and bureaucrats included - will do that if you let them. The thing you have to do is hold their feet to the fire, and make them support that re-definition, or disown it.
In some cases, that can't be done. For example in the reassignment of the traditional political colors that occurred around the 2000 election. What is now "blue" was "red" before that, and vice versa, and it's a done deal now that it has been switched. They just slipped it in when no one was looking, and held on tight until the redefinition took root.
Keep watching and call them on what changes they make, or they'll slip other stuff in under the radar as well!
