Several points here:

A 3:1 supermajority is ¾, not ⅔.

Some members do not agree with the actual supermajority requirements
as assigned to the options on the ballot, which is not a comment on
how those people think we should change foundation documents.

Some members do not agree that the supermajority-required ballot
options actually required changes to the foundation documents, which
is not a comment on how those people think supermajority requirements
should be assigned.

I can only conclude that we really do need to see a vote (as proposed
earlier) on how the SC and DFSG should affect the Debian project. The
outcome of that vote would help me, at least, to understand what the
project thinks the relationship is between our actions and the
foundation documents.
