Formally, this requires a change to the Process. I don't think it is a  
complex change, if there is clear consensus for it, but it may be a  
difficult way to get information. And drawing a lot of conclusions from a  
single election is limited by the circumstances of the individual election.

I don't object to the idea, and would support it, but I would like us to  
have more longitudinal data too, which is why I think collecting better  
data over a series of elections would *probably* be more useful.

(I'm still thinking about all this - at some point I will look for a CfC  
when I have a clear question that I think is the right one, but others are  
welcome to make one in the meantime. I'll send a different message about  
'process' in this group to clarify people can do it).
