Your issue raises a procedural question.  Our process allows us to
move forward the current proposal "as is" (there are some nuances
to that, but close enough for this discussion), or we can change
it and hold it back for another loop through the next meeting.

So if you feel strongly enough that this should be included, you have
basically two paths forward:

1) Lobby Owen to modify his proposal, and choose not to support it
   as-is.  This will require all changes to go through another meeting

2) Let this policy go as-is, and then submit an additional policy for
   the next meeting which clarifies the section of interest.  In this
   case we can get the benefits of most of the proposal now, and add
   some additional clarification in the next cycle.

Do you believe this issue is important enough that path #1 is necessary,
or would path #2 make you happy?
