I object to being asked to vote on a meaningless proposal.  If I vote
for 3, am I voting for an amendment to DFSG, Social Contract or
Constitution?  Which one of those?  What exactly is the text of the
change?  I am a good deal more reluctant to vote for a fundamental
change than for a position paper.

To express the ballot choice in such a way automatically imposes biase.
