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.]
The solution to a problem changes the problem.
