Sorry to be a bit pedantic here, but this _is_ an important issue, and 
if we're gonna do it, we need to have our ducks in a row from the get 
go. Saying that "there would almost for sure be a winning name" is not 
sufficient. We MUST clearly detail how the team deals with deadlock or 
"failure" before we vote on this proposal.

Can we also require the team to provide an official findings document 
which lays out the costs in detail?
