Haven't read the rest of the discussion, but what if there was a rule that maybe, say, allowed a free pend every week, as long as the proposal is under some character count. It might need some tweaking, but it could work.

proposal is very expensive right now (non-officeholders can only propose
3/month if anyone else objects). Making it harder to propose simple fixups
is very bad for the game because they tend not to get written. If you have
3 proposals per month, are you really going to spend one of those on a
small fix that everyone agrees is good? Imposing delays on simple fixup
proposals is not good either, especially since they're the sort of
proposals that are easily forgotten so the author may forget to resolve the

I feel like review periods are good things, especially when you're
asking Agora if the proposal is enough in the good interests of the game

Given the Promotor's schedule (close to a fixed weekly time, say Mondays),
there's only 4 days in the week (e.g. Thu-Sun) that it would delay
And since the Assessor might delay up to a week anyway, the 4 days is
not big.
