I'm not quite in agreement in that I think some controversies shouldn't be
avoided, but I largely feel similarly.  However, given that six members of
the project can force a vote on basically any topic, I don't think it's
realistic to assume that we will always be able to avoid political votes.
The bar to bringing a GR to a vote is (intentionally) not high.
