Well, section 2.4(h) is carefully and intentionally worded such that the
Chair reports the "automatic" approval of the vote, rather than enabling
it. So that section is not an issue. This was discussed at the time we
redrafted this section, with the possibility of a chair not fulfilling
their duties being the exact concern which motivated this wording.

However you are right that if the Review Periods were not validly
started, then they cannot have validly ended, and it seems the Review
Periods require the full text to be made available in order to be
validly initiated :-(

But I don't think this mislabelling has a bylaw-legal effect in itself.
