This sounds suspiciously like "I don't seem to have the support of the 
community, so I wonder if the Board/AC can ignore the process and do what I 
want anyways."

I don't know whether or not they can do that; it doesn't seem possible, but 
there's probably a loophole or two.  However, given the vocal opposition to 
the proposal (and the very existence of ULA-C), I doubt you'd ever convince 
them to if they could.  It's one thing to sneak through something that 
nobody cares about either way, but it's entirely different to deliberately 
exclude the community on something so divisive.

If you seriously propose doing the above, I suspect you'll manage to 
alienate even the folks who agree with ULA-C.
