Leaving it out is okay, but please don't phrase it in a way that implies
that anybody who votes for this option declares to be discontent about
the SC.  I think I'd be willing to rank this proposal quite high on any
ballot involving any of the proposals made so far.  But I'd never rank a
proposal higher than further discussion in which *I* declare that I want
the SC to be reverted.
