      Exactly, that is very important.

      It could be phrased that way, but Scrum does say that if it impossible for the team to make the commitment, they can initiate discussion to rescope the sprint with the PO.

      Now that is a different case as this one, but a precedent has been made. As long as the team's authority is respected, I don't see why the team couldn't collaborate with the PO. Obviously, this is an area where the Team and SM must tread carefully, and make sure the PO (and possibly the PM, too) understands the procedure correctly.

      Yours, Petri
