Guys, I think this is not productive. If the vote wins, it won't be by
chance, it will mean there's a 3:1 majority that supports this change. At
that point, if the wording is contentious, you can always propose another
vote to resolve that.
And looking at what others (e.g. Peter) had to say about this, it seems the
position among those who support sourceless firmware is not unanimous. This
would have to be resolved in some way, too. Either with a new vote, or by
adding a new option to this ballot.

still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
