I think cancelling this vote and its associated mile-long thread, compiling a
list of the issues raised over the last few weeks, stepping through that list,
addressing it (or attempting to convince us they'll be sufficiently addressed
later), then re-starting the vote is "in order".

No, I'm not volunteering.

I'm not going to lift a -1 that probably caused a lot of people to not
vote (esp. since there were several) so that a vote can end in a few more
hours. That just sucks and if that's really you're goal here you have me
very confused -- you don't want the perception that this thing was
"shoehorned through" since that effectively will kill the whole project
before it starts.

Take the rest of the week to get rid of the silly boilerplate many people
have already pointed at and be fully honest (c'mon, we *are* talking about
a homogeneous group of people who don't have a lot of traceble experience
with open source, go out and say so) about everything in the proposal, then
start a new vote, giving people enough time to review what changed.
