Until the vote is held, it's not reasonable to act on any specific
outcome for the vote -- we can't know whether the winning option will
receive a normal majority.  We can't even know which option will win.

And if the override is implicitly specified, but not explicitly specified,
then what?

Even in the absence of any override, a "position of the day" has quite
a bit of force -- it just needs to not explicitly conflict with any
foundation documents.  Ambiguities in documents give a fair degree
of latitude.

That said, I don't think that discussing what proposals which have not
yet been voted on might mean is "noise".  I think that if we had had more
talk of the potential implications in discussion period for the last GR
that we wouldn't have people wanting another GR to "fix the problem".
