I didn't follow Cyriaque's case closely so I'm not sure what problem
this creates, could you explain this please.

If this does not happen, why is this part of the procedure still in
place. As it is I'd not (0) be in favour of just jumping it because of
the complications involved if they choose to exercise their right to
deny them membership.

How about starting a motion to do away with this step or else
simplify procedure (why does it need to wait for step 5 so that it
doesn't get delayed).
