Er.. are you suggesting we squelch debate on supermajority?

None of the additions were "random".  They were flawed in a number of
ways (I had a flawed understanding of the significance of pairwise ties
in CpSSD, for example), and we've been discussing the flaws.

Personally, I'm currently looking at the draft implied by
Message-ID: <[🔎] 20021122063835.GA28726@azure.humbug.org.au>

If it doesn't make sense, I'd like to understand why.  If it does
make sense, I'd like to see a formally written instance of that draft.
Right now it seems to make a lot of sense.

At the moment?  We're trying to protect ourselves from instituting a
bad set of rules.

Neither can I.

However, I can imagine us making changes out of frustration or anger,
or for some other reason making changes where we've not fully considered
the implications of a decision.
