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 [1]) attempt to do.
