Can't be done this way. Board have very much "elevated permissions"
relatively to what Council is allowed to do now, and such change in
rules require referendum, via current Council statute.

OTOH, we can't just put it as "accepting bylaws is equal to accepting
current Council as Board of Directors", because many people might like
to accept bylaws, but at the same time, to give such "elevated
permissions" to other people.

Due to this, IMO, referendum for bylaws *and* separate election for
Board of Directors is required.
