Since you don't actually need seconders under §4.2.1, and you are the
proposer of the original option, I don't think it's necessary (unless
a seconder wants to propose the original proposal as a second
amendment.) And in any case, any change is allowed by the original
proposer of a particular amendment; it just resets the discussion
period unless it meets A.1.6. [Though one of these days, we probably
should fix up A.1; it's language doesn't properly promote amendments
to resolutions (options?) to be voted on.]

The sheer ponderousness of the panel's opinion [...] refutes its
thesis far more convincingly than anything I might say. The panel's
labored effort to smother the Second Amendment by sheer body weight
has all the grace of a sumo wrestler trying to kill a rattlesnake by
sitting on it---and is just as likely to succeed.
