They're original change proposals that somewhat bypass the "file-a-bug/editor-response/create-issue/create-change-proposals" process. 

If we can't come to consensus through discussion, then indeed we will call for alternative solutions written up as Change Proposals. In the meantime, Matt is free to update his Change Proposal if he feels a different approach would enjoy broader consensus. And I still think we can come to much closer agreement through discussion.
