Ah, I see what you're getting at. If the release team thinks going ahead with
this is the right approach, I'm happy to go along with that, including deferring
my GR stuff.

AFAICS none of the release team have seconded that proposal though? I don't
think I've seen Manoj's thoughts on whether that proposal will require a 3:1
supermajority or has any other flaws either.
