To follow up. Each of the proposals:

now has the feedback gathering section at the end.
I am done with my personal feedback. Please provide

Here's the criteria you can apply when deciding whether
to spend time on this or not: imagine that the proposal
the way it is written were to come to a vote. If at that point
you'd be inclined to vote -1 -- please let us know NOW.

Using a VOTE thread as a forcing function for folks to
provide feedback would be *really* unfortunate.

Also, please try to keep 'deal breakers' section as small
as possible (pushing all the non-critical piece of your
feedback to the 'suggestions' section). When in doubt
(even if it is -0) -- make it go to suggestions.

The only items that belong to 'dealbreakers' are the ones
that would *strongly* motivate you to vote -1
