Proposed resolution:

1) When a Change Proposal covers multiple separable changes, during review the
Chairs suggest (but do not necessarily mandate) splitting the Change Proposal
into one per change and splitting the issue in a corresponding way.

D) If a Change Proposal author is unwilling to split, and feels the changes are
all-or-nothing, then the Chairs treat it that way. If *any* part of a compound
Change Proposal (where a split was recommended) is found to draw stronger
objections than the alternative, the whole Change Proposal is rejected. We do
that instead of issuing a split decision.

E) If two compound Change Proposals, where in each case the Chairs recommended
a split, are up against each other, and one part of one draws weaker
objections, and another part of the other draw weaker objections, they both
fail. If these are the only Change Proposals, the issue is closed without
