This asymmetry guards against a GR discussion being allowed to continue
indefinitely as a result of a small minority of developers repeatedly
introducing amendments that prolong the discussion period.

Whether malicious or not, I think this is important to guard against.

IMHO, it's better to have a vote quickly on a limited set of GR options,
with the possibility of a second GR if there is sufficient dissatisfaction
with the first GR outcome, than to have community energy spent endlessly on
crafting a perfect set of options before we take a vote.
