I think we want to avoid the situation where a change can be made and
then a vote be moved immediately. Don't we? Or do we just say that if
that happens, people who object to the change can just vote No? But
often, the problem they have can be fixed with a bit more discussion, if
the proposer hadn't jumped the gun. So I do think some guaranteed space
is appropriate.
