While I'm personally probably more worried about how calls for votes are
disseminated than about how the voting mechanism itself works, the
proposed change feels like a slippery slope towards the possibility that
how voting happens becomes generally less well understood.  Requiring a
GR to change the mechanism seems like a completely reasonable way to
both vet the proposed change, and ensure a maximum number of potential
voters understand what's changing.
