criterion (for non-broken definitions of "reasonable")? If so, I'd
leave the other theoretical cases for until someone proposes an
appropriate wording for a change to the constitution or policy (so
then we can have the shared goal of debugging that wording[*]).
If not, of course, that point of disagreement seems like a good place
to focus the discussion.
Hope that helps,
[*] of course, the current wording ("The program must include source
code") is buggy because vague. But that's harder to debug without an
example people disagree about.
