Either of these options will require 2:1, though.
Let me quote §4.1.4:
Together, the Developers may: [...] Make or override any decision
authorised by the powers of the Technical Committee, provided they
agree with a 2:1 majority.
As you can see, there's no difference between making a decision which
requires the CTTE powers (first proposed method), or overriding a
decision which requires the CTTE powers (second proposed method).
We want to draft language which avoids this, which is what the paragraph
in question (and Ian's paragraph in ) attempt to do.
