Flexibility on ambiguity is not flexibility, it's foolishness. I can
understand that it may be difficult for you to understand the set of
concerns, but I think you're unduly offering suggestions on something that
Jeremy is more than capable of addressing. It's unclear why you're
attempting to propose a particular solution, rather than allow him, as the
ballot author, to understand these concerns, as he no doubt does, and
incorporate them.

If you're concerned about ballots you may propose running into the same
issue, then if you were to propose a ballot that suffers from the same
problem here, I'm more than happy to take the time with you, including on
the phone if necessary and helpful for you, to explain these concerns to
your satisfaction. However, I think you're unduly presenting a solution
that is insufficient, but also irrelevant to the task at hand.

I think there's enough context on this list for Jeremy to understand the
concerns and address them. And I'm sure you agree that making progress is
more important than satisfying your understanding.

All the best
