Given context, I think these originally shotgunned proposals (especially
these two) need careful re-evaluation, to figure out how much actual
point they have and how much they're just a reflection of a past spite.

The "cloture" proposal honestly seems like a needless pile of additional
process.  Anyone can call for a vote at any time, and I don't think
that's a bug; if people agree that a vote is warranted, they can vote,
and if they don't, they can vote "further discussion".  If even a simple
majority is opposed to holding a vote, they can all vote "Further
Discussion".  Anyone else can *also* call for a vote at any time, if
they feel there's another issue to discuss.

So, I would suggest that the "cloture" proposal should be consigned to a
historical note along with the fit of pique it came from.

For 795857, the TC chair process, there is indeed a lack of documented
process for how and when the TC chair is determined; I think the
suggestion Bdale referenced makes sense, to re-evaluate this in light of
the new term limits:
