I agree with you, I don't see any reason why we are deadlocked. If we
want to do yet another round on improving texts this is fine for me,
but should be finished soon. And the following vote should really be
finished, and I expect an outcome from the votes and statements I have
seeing so far. (I don't plan to vote FD again - I even didn't plan it
for this vote, but wanted to give Steve a chance to update the texts,
that is why I changed it for the moment.)
