That makes the existing rules harder to make more restrictive.
Are you sure you want this in the bootstrap version? It would seem more
logical to me to introduce a proposal to make this adjustment six months
in or so, no?

Right, so, that's common politeness to my mind, but seems trivial to amend

Mmm. Right, ok, explicit retraction/change of vote stuff is probably worth

Basically: Given these modifications are all minor tweaks to things the
proposal explicitly renders tweakable, I'm inclined to ask - why do you believe
having me making the changes you desire unilaterally would be more in the
spirit of this proposal than letting it go forwards and proposing your
amendments in the normal way afterwards?
I mean, I can totally tweak the document before it's finalised. But I can't
see what that gains over "present these as amendments afterwards" ?
(I'm really not trying to be snarky here, much though 'not snarky' doesn't
exactly come naturally to me ;)
