I agree. Complaints-per-submission and method of submission sound more like
mechanics than policy and I'm fine with discussing those,

Indeed, I don't recall that such minutae was even considered by the STI as
policy. If that was the case, do such non-policy-related changes even need
to go back to the community? Why not just revise them and open a public
comment process?

If there is a review team to monitor the implementation change, it
certainly demands At-Large involvement.
