Personally, I would rather not rely on the WMF's ability to guage UK
community opinion. It's not easy to guage the opinion of a community
you aren't a member of.

That's better. I prefer my version, though. There is no need for a
consensus on this, we can vote at the AGM. (You propose an amendment
to my motion, we vote on that amendment. If 50% agree to amend it,
then we require 75% to agree to implement the amended version,
otherwise we require 75% to agree to implement to original version.)

Are any of those likely to be urgent changes that can't wait until the next AGM?
