How things have shifted I don't know, but they feared anything resembling a democracy (cf. The Federalist Papers) for the same reasons why our government is as it is today. A republic would be a better choice. I am however just one voice and one choice, so I kinda don't suspect these opinions to change the course of Debian. I do think however that now is a bad time to discuss it in detail. Right now hamm is more important because the uses are more important than our squabbles over political structure.
