I'll be expressing my view fully on another post to this thread, but
basically I don't think the document that dictates Gentoo's
meta-structure should be amendable by the overruling body. Furthermore,
due to past history and in good judgment, our governance policy should
require a global vote of the developer community.

I agree with the idea of separating the goal and general rules of the
functioning of the council and their influence in the global governance
from the daily details of how they operate. The latter should be set
freely by a council at any time with a majority vote. However, slacker
marks aren't a detail on the council operation but a "safety net"
measure that should be part of the meta-structure policy document.
