So, right or wrong ;-), there's a veto asking just for a bit more
reflection. I think this is reasonable seen that the proposal has undergone
some major changes and the Recording part hasn't really been looked at
closely because, as you say yourself, the whole discussion seemed to have
focussed on tracks and releases. And Nikki's proposed changes to the
examples should at least be examined seriously – maybe we really can improve
the wording if we have a bit more time to think about it.
So instead of discussing at length whether this RFV (and this veto) are
legit or not, I'd ask you to please resubmit as RFC to make things advance
:-)
