Only in one place; there is a second place where it needs reverting, in
the third line.

Let me change my question here, then. :-)
Would it be generally a good idea, for the avoidance of doubt, to have
the Bylaws say:
"Nothing in these Bylaws is intended to supercede or replace anything in
the IPR Policy. In the event of a conflict between these Bylaws and the
IPR Policy, the IPR Policy shall govern."
If it would be a good idea for the Bylaws to say this, should we add
that to this ballot?
Whatever you decide about the wisdom of doing that, with the
first-mentioned tweak above I am happy to endorse this ballot, if that
would be helpful.
