[+ many similar additions]

Alternatively, just s/The Technical Committee/A constitution-defined
committee/ where applicable.  I think adding soc-ctte analogues to
most mentions of tech-ctte makes the constitution significantly less

The above power seems daft.  soc-ctte deciding that farting loudly in
DebConf dinner attendees' faces is a social norm would not make it so.
This power needs omitting or rewriting to be much closer to the
equivalent tech-ctte one, so it does not permit contradicting reality.
