I agree with all your points but the support for a survey: I think it was always part of the original plan, i.e. discuss the most common workflows on the mailing list, elaborate one or multiple model that can have enough traction, and then go with a survey to have a picture of how it would impact the community.
Ultimately a survey is not really a vote, I don’t know how we would take the final decision on this though.
