And that prevented the Board from walking up to the mike and saying  
"If this policy is passed as is, we will be forced to change it in  
ways XYZ?"

Or, for that matter, "We would prefer policy <insert template>, but  
can't submit it.  We ask that someone from the community who also  
likes this idea send it into the policy process."

My point is the Board could have, and should have, spoke up the normal  
process in an effort to avoid having to use their emergency powers.
