This resolution appears to fall under §4.1.5; an argument could also
make for it falling under §4.1.3, but that's less clear cut.

For those following along at home:

    §4.1.5: [Togther the developers may] Issue, supersede and withdraw
    nontechnical policy documents and statements.

I submit that the proposal is a nontechnical policy document.

[Obviously, the Secretary is the one who makes this determination
under §7.1.3, so presumably Manoj has already thought about which part
of the constitution this proposal falls under.]
