> I don't think it's fair to have a vote-off between two well-specified options and one vague option.

This is a good point. If we go to a vote it needs to be clear what people are voting on and what the implications will be.

> If no-one cares enough to specify it properly, it shouldn't be on the ballot.

I think given the heat of this discussion so far, it would be unfair to say that "no-one cares". I appreciate how frustrating it is to not be able to make progress, but given the strongly entrenched positions on some sides of this debate I think it's fair to say that the result of any vote will be divisive. While there may still be a possibility for us to reach consensus, or at least to have all options more clearly specified, we should hold off on the vote.

Trust me, I want us to reach a decision on this issue and move on as we have so much work to do in other areas, but at this time of year (my co-chair is on leave for the next few days for example), we may need to continue to be patient.

I thank you and everyone else involved in working towards a solution to this issue for your hard work.
