Those points will be addressed in the proposed Resolution we send to
the IPMC.  What we're having right now is the preliminary "community
graduation vote", which according this diagram from the IPMC's "Guide
to Successful Graduation" occurs *before* the charter is created:

Not that this same guide says of this community vote, "It is unlikely
that IPMC members will vote to approve graduation unless the Mentors
and community positively express their readiness for graduation. "  So
I am slightly concerned that you do not feel able to vote in this
ballot, which merely expresses (per the graduation guidelines) our
readiness for graduation.
