Someone needs to be clear that something is proposed, and that
it's being seconded. I don't see Ian either actually proposing it
as an option, nor seconding it. As far as I understand, you actually
made a different proposal without any seconds.

I guess that "is RC bug" overrides the power of a delegate (the
release team). The delegation
says "Which issues are release-critical (RC)".
