No. However, majorities do not always choose progress.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Should a majority always win it? No.

I'm unsure. It would make for consistency and reduces the number
of people being flamed to a crisp (but we should reduce that anyway),
but maybe would concentrate power or overload the secretary.

I meant "non-technical position statement". Editing error.
I don't think the quick turnaround is desirable for any of the
other types of GR.
