Those aren't the grammar fixes I would be thinking of. I expect we
will sort those things out :-).
In the meantime, I also second this proposal.
My understanding of the process is that seconders do not have to
approve further changes. Instead, if there is a change we do not like
we can (and must) say that we object. But for the avoidance of doubt,
I also agree with Brian Gupta's comments about wording changes.
