Not the subject line, but all the options in "part 1" of your survey.

What I am saying is that we need to have a two-part "California-style"
ballot here:

1. Do you believe that DFSG should apply to documentation?

2. If DFSG should apply to documentation, what should be the disposition of
GFDL according to DFSG?  (This is the question you asked.)

I don't think that the answer to question two can be relevant unless we have
established that the answer to question 1 is "yes".
