Sometimes Change Proposals request a grab bag of changes that are loosely
related, but separable in principle. This creates a few problems:
   a) At times, the Chairs have to refactor an issue into multiple separate
surveys. This tends to be confusing to the WG.
   b) Sometimes the Chairs may find that one part of a proposal drew the
weakest objections but not another part, leading to split decisions. Split
decisions can lead to confusion about applying the decision and undue
controversy.
   c) Evaluating and countering more complex Change Proposals is more
challenging for Working Group members.
