The application manager already pops up a note to the effect that knives
can hurt you, so to speak. If you accept, it isn't Nokia's fault that

I'm not against your proposal, I simply feel the top issue to solve is
the discouraging effect that the current system could have on
developers: trivial changes should go through without requiring a full
vote cycle again.

My 2€¢ :-)
