Thanks for pointing this out, Owen.

It seems to be the heart of this particular matter, but also, perhaps 
coincidentally, several other recent proposals, as well.

Anyway, AFA prop-138 IC, I am opposed to it on the grounds that it is 
apparently redundant. The same observation would seem to serve for 
proposed rationales advocating governance criteria, too, I think.
