Haravikk, if you'll refer to the original post in this thread, you'll see
that the core team has not opened up a review of the revised proposal as a
whole; it is explicitly a "review of this amendment."

It is no fun to call people out on this, but I'll do it if no one else
will. If someone starts a conversation to talk about X in a public forum,
anyone is free to join that conversation to talk about X or not to do so.
Surely, we can all agree that it's a breach of etiquette anywhere, in any
forum, to join that conversation with the purpose of talking about Y.
Generally, it's good manners and not "policing" for any participant who's
interested in talking or hearing about X to say to that other person, "I'm
sorry, the topic at the moment is X." That doesn't mean that one person is
better than the other in any way, but it's also not an invitation to start
a debate as to whether the topic at the moment really is X or Y.
