    Given that there is already some charter that says KS attendees vote...
    isn't it best to retain that? Directives from above aside, you need
    specifications on how to change voting procedure before changing it, no?
    If those don't exist, then something vaguely similar in my country would
    require a referendum I think.

    Hasn't the KS committee / TAB board vote rigging conspiracy theory been
    raised yet? Given they're not running a country, it would be great fun
    to see the board getting corrupted and go off the rails ;) I'd vote for
    them because if Ted has anything to do with it, I *know* we'll be having
    KS in Hawaii ;)
