Just to clarify, that is not my perspective.  Like I said in the
following sentence,

  The importance of a more stringent wording (I think) is to make it clear to
  project members that the committee will only be using this power in the
  most sensitive of situations, rather than all the time.

When it comes to adjusting the constitution, I think it is certainly
appropriate to put in the requisite thought to get the changes right.

I'm also not insisting in any way that I'm right, I just think its
useful to think and discuss such important things.

Best wishes,
