things will get voted in via referendum. Council election rules - even
apart from the thing about ambiguous interpretations - are not set in
stone, and Community can change them, or give right to change them to
their legal representation (Board).

The "old" way of doing thing is proven to NOT work as it should, and
the whole history of Maemo after splitting with Nokia is a direct
proof of it.

Fortunately, opposition of *only* one person in Council won't stop
changes, so I'm not entirely sure why we're even having this
discussion. Opinion of every Board and Council member is quite clear,
as is the roadmap. Unless you amass more votes in Board/Council
sharing your opinion, than the awesome one (self) you have now, no
matter of grotesque shouting and jumping will help.
