Not really. I think that the power to decide to violate the DFSG
is not given to _anyone_ in the constitution. Option 4 explicitly adds
So, currently, the RT can not violate the DFSG (and I think they
have been stating all along that they are not, in their opinion,
violating the DFSG); with option 4 they can. This I think is the
distinction between option 4 and FD.
Why were these clarifying questions not asked of the proposers
in the discussion period?
