I read your recent blog entry on the topic, and I think you make interesting
points defending your proposal. From my perspective (i.e. the perspective of
someone who isn't very familiarized with the areas of Debian affected by your
proposed changes), the whole thing looked confusing, and I didn't know (still
don't!) whether I would support it or not.
So, I totally support you in defending your proposal, but I think it could've
been a lot better if those points were made _before_ the announcement. The
reason I seconded this GR is because, one way or the other, I think a healthy
reform is one that is endorsed by the majority of developers  (and if the
proposed vote doesn't pass, that is a form of endorsement too).
I'd like to encourage you to bring this discussion forward, and push for your
proposed changes to gain acceptance. My opinion, right now, is that I have no
clue about what they imply, and will most likely not vote or send a no-op
 or members, or people with voting rights, whatever..
