I believe we're already using the form that Lars and Russ described, in the context of GR's. On the mailinglist, people collaboratively construct a short essay that they think rightly makes the case for their option. Others may construct a complete counterpoint, but there's also the form where you agree with the essay but want to change one aspect of it (an amendment). In the GR process these options are then put to the vote and even votes that didn't read all of debian-vote can make an informed decision by reading each of the options put forth that document the motivations. The proposed system seems to work well, and I don't know why it couldn't equally work well when ported to the non-voting-context of debian-devel. Cheers, Thijs
