The proposal would not reclassify all grief as a mental disorder. It would try to identify people suffering from grief outside the norm, severe enough to be considered major depression. I personally feel this is almost impossible to do in a structured way given the massive cultural and personal differences that come into play with grief. My experience is that people can tell when their grief is too much for them, but I've seen many people who think their grief is abnormal when its not.
