Though I agree that the release team cannot put any foundation document
aside, I don't think the release team is overriding the social contract,
but chooses a certain interpretation (that I think is the correct one
btw). Other people obviously prefer a different interpretation, and so
the relevant question is: Whose interpretation is the binding one?
Currently, it seems to me that unless decided otherwise by a GR, the
release team has the final say (as explained by Russ).
