Let's finish that vote then and move on.

That is an entirely separate issue. I agree that it is important and
needs to be resolved, but the Technical Committee is the wrong place to
be designing this policy. We must (by 6.3.5) not engage in design of new
proposals and policies.

Yes, as individuals, we may choose to collaborate with others on the
development of a suitable policy, and that group may well decide that
they cannot reach a consensus and bring the issue back to the Technical
Committee for advice. Please stop trying to bypass the constitutional
process for policy design.
