I suggest that this be accomplished by setting a slightly higher standard for
Change Proposals that don't make any conformance classes change.  For instance,
the chairs might require that such proposals clearly explain who will benefit
from the proposed change (specification readers? editors of other
specifications?), and at least briefly explain what specific benefit they'll
get.  This will at least help prevent Change Proposals like Julian's in
ISSUE-127, which don't even try to explain who will benefit or how.  If the
proposal suggests a conformance class change, that at least means we can figure
out who's affected, and presumably figure out how, so such an added requirement
isn't necessary.
