Well, presumably if that happened, a second vote would be held on Branden's
proposal and it would pass.  Therefore, you arrive at the same conclusion

Your method could result in ignoring the wishes of a majority of Debian
developers who like Branden's proposal, simply because a larger majority
prefer fewer changes but still prefer Branden's to nothing.
