Well, for one thing, you can't make a proposal with just the names that
you like.  A meritocracy means that you must accept that other people
may not agree with your ideas.  Since there were other options offered
(whether you like them or not), they must be in the vote, or the vote is
completely invalid.  Even if you want to veto those options, they must
be in the vote, or you aren't giving people an opportunity to change
your mind.
