I don't care about just the proposers opinion, I want to
ensure that what the proposer is telling me is what the people and
the sponsors also agreed to. I suppose we could have a lengthy email
exchange, and assume that the sponsors are still paying attention to
every mail in the deluge that is -vote; or we can have an up front
process that does not depend on a culture of heroes for success.
