This has happened before. The secretary adjudicates any disputes about
interpretation of the constitution.
I would suggest that in future, it doesn't get this far by a proposer
asking the secretary for their probable view *first* if they're
proposing anything which may require a supermajority.
Or anyone could simply ask the secretary for advice about any GR, and
I'm sure they'd receive a comment about phrasing/legitamacy/quorate etc.
