How many complaints has devrel dealt with from start to finish using 
the "new" model?  I'm trying to understand where the red tape is, what 
it is hindering, and how it has been tested so far.

IMHO some of the red tape is necessary for the process to be correct.  
Certainly it should be trimmed where possible without compromising the 
system, and I appreciate that's what you're wanting to do.  It's just 
a matter of determining which red tape can be cut and which can't.

You make a good point concerning the checks and balances inherently 
available in a voting system.  Nonetheless, you'll displease a lot of 
people by doing away with one of the core attributes of the proposal, 
so IMHO it would help to explain how it has hindered you so far.
