I'm sorry, David, but I'm a little confused. I've probably misunderstood 
your good efforts. However, I'm a bit concerned about an "in-principle" 
proposal and a subsequent "in-principle" vote. Doesn't our voting system 
depend on a technical justification to accompany a -1 vote when 
requested? How can you have a technical discussion of the merits of an 
in-principle proposal (which lacks such details)?

Why not? Isn't the whole point of concern right now (+1, 0, or -1) 
about  how, when, and where?

But there are many issues we can discuss right now! Why can't we draft a 
proposal of how we'd do it right now? If it gets voted down, we can 
always propose it again down the road, with modifications.
