        So your position is essentially that the foundation documents
 are not really binding on any developer, and even in cases where the
 developer thinks they are binding, a simple majoiry can effectively
 vacate that.

        Does not sound like much of a contract to me, and I must reject
 this interpretation.

In order to live free and happily, you must sacrifice boredom. It is not
always an easy sacrifice.
