Ok, so this option C would involve not overriding the maintainer,
coupled with requesting documentation in the release notes, and would
also supplant 5 and 6 in the A and B versions.
I've gone ahead and updated the current don_draft.txt with this text
as written with the other options.

I believe that the fixes outlined in option B are going to get
implemented regardless of how the CTTE rules; the primary goal of B is
to make the gnome dependency on NM conditional on those fixes being
implemented. [And if that's not clear from the text of B, that's
something that I would like to resolve.]

neatly away so that they don't upset people. Nature, in fact, abhors a
lot of things, including vacuums, ships called the Marie Celeste, and
the chuck keys for electric drills.
