There are people who have a greater understanding of these issues than others.
For example, if I read the proposal to say "Debian must be free on non-free
docs and firmware for the next release", it makes little difference. However,
if the RM reads it as this, it makes a larger difference. Therefore, it would
have been helpful if the RM had made this opinion clear at a time when other
developers could do something about it.
Hindsight is lovely of course.

I'm not looking to blame anyone, but it would have been nice if this could
have been avoided. We look amateurish enough already.
