Not exactly.  I'm saying that whenever there are 6 DDs who don't like the
outcome of the first GR, *and believe it could be overturned with a better

So, the option to overturn with a second GR if the first one is considered
satisfactory already exists (and would exist under any proposed changes to
the system).  How often has that option been exercised?

I think the existing system already gives you the result you say above that
you want.
