I agree with this assessment that Ian's proposal would allow the Policy
process to get more done, in the sense of both building and documenting
project consensus.

I appreciate that, from the point of view of a proponent of new systemd
features, this getting more done in Policy will seem to be in tension
with getting more done in the archive.

As a counterpoint to that, I think that the Policy process is an
important part of how we get things done in the archive in the longer
term, and Ian's proposal speaks to that.

If we found that the six month delay was repeatedly expiring with no
serious attempts at non-systemd implementations of the new features, we
could repeal this GR.
