You believe Ballot SC22 messes up the versioning of the Guidelines? Can you
please define what "messes up" means in the context of the proposed version

Again, we're in agreement that the Forum Bylaws can be amended to allow
flexibility in areas that the Chartered Working Group designates. That work
has not been done, however, and is not permitted by our Bylaws today, so
it's unclear if you're suggesting that you believe it better that we
disregard our Bylaws until "someone" (unclear who) proposes changes to the
Bylaws. With Ballot SC22, I am trying to follow our Bylaws, as written,
unless and until someone who feels strongly against that - e.g. because
they believe it might mess up the versioning (despite our Bylaws including
provisions to prevent that) proposes changes our Bylaws.
