I can't remember the thread off-hand, but I believe the idea is that
some people feel the changes to the social contract were only editorial.
Given this, some people might think that only the release policy has
changed, and that reverting the changes from GR 2004-03 won't change the
meaning of the social contract, because it has always been the same.
If you accept this line of reasoning, the amendments that attempt to
revert to the previous wording won't have any affect.
