We could put it to a vote, but that's kind of a brute force

A better way would be for the OP (Sebastian in this case) to make a
modified proposal in light of the discussion.  If nobody cries foul,
this is what gets implemented.

I do not see what good a version would be here.  But it certainly
would not hurt to have the language indicated.
