We have not been making people do formal amendments at all
(replace all the words of the amendment foo with these words). I also
think that placing all related proposals on a single ballot is
relevant, it prevents an easy exploit of the voting system by simply
setting up a series of votes that can be gamed, and setting up all
kinds of related proposals to be set up on different ballots.
Frankly, I think that kind of gaming of the voting system that
is being proposed now, and I am not comfortable letting that happen.
If you stop to think about it, you're already dead.
