I think the best solution would be to jettision the area vote and move
straight into wording papers.
I have some ideas for a detailed process the gist of it being:
Individuals write wording papers and submit them to the topic committee. The
TC submits minimum standards for what constitutes a wording paper but
everything that meets that standard makes it onto a ballot (replacing the area
vote) and then the top three to five vote getters are sent back to the TC which
then can create one or two of their own wordings similar to the one created by
the author of the wording paper and suggest changes to the authors of the
wording papers to their wordings. The author of the wording paper would have
veto power over any changes to their wording. This process would ensure that at
least one resolution that was true to the original papers would end up on a
ballot. It would also ensure a substantial amount of time could be devoted to
That's the short version. If anyone thinks this is a viable idea let me know
and I can help put together a formal proposal.
