Unfortunately I think this arguing is moot, as the issue seems to
been decided already anyway. I only remember one change "proposal" to
actually being pulled back in the last year, and I'm really disappointed
about having fake discussions on devel@ whilst the decision has already
been made. There are some where the Change proposal owner actually
considers other options which come up in the discussion, but for a few
of them there is not even an answer, and for some of them the only
Change proposal owner response is "but it is the best option".
I would like to respectfully disagree---my recollection is that when
there was a vigorous opposition, the proposals were changed/retracted.
In this particular case, it feels to me that the responses are mostly in
favor, so it may be that this proposal is going against your preference,
but this is good--it's how the system is supposed to work.
I am always always impressed by the discussion's high caliber and
information content--I tend to learn a lot. My recollection is that
proposals are being changed as a result.
I hope you can see it in a different light--as an opportunity to
improve, not as an imposition. I am certainly glad that those proposals
are in our workflow---thanks Ben, and the proposal authors!
