At the moment, there is only one option with enough seconds. How is voting FOR your proposal different from voting AGAINST the current proposal? Or, if more proposals gain enough seconds, how is voting FOR this option different from voting AGAINST all options that issue a statement one way or the other?

I understand that mechanically they are different: this one issues a statement that we won't issue a statement either way. But, in your view, why is that desirable? Why should I vote FOR your proposal (or why should I second it)?
