Let me observe that the fact that "several people here think" is not

That said, I disagree with point (ii) of your interpretation:

it should rather be "Yes":

Rationale: with "further discussion" nothing changes. Today RMs are
empowered, by delegation, to decide upon transitions and
"lenny-ignore" tags. It will be the same tomorrow if "further
discussion" wins.

If people disagree with that, they can overrule delegates' decision as
supported by our constitution.

BTW, this is yet another hint that separate ballots would have been
better, because we are implicitly calling for another GR in some
special case, but unfortunately Dato's proposal to split ballots
doesn't seem to have gained enough momentum.
