It's you who decided to put all the proposals on the same ballot. I
don't think it's fair to request from people who disagree with that to
invest time in proposing more options. It's you who decided to make it a

different things which could have made it cleaner instead IMHO.

Sure, though you could have followed the procedure or hinted people in
an even saner direction IMHO.
