No, I'm asking for arguments in favour. So far, arguments were mostly
against, because all those in favour didn't have to discuss against
the status quo.

This led to those against lacking understanding of the real arguments.
I think Tanya is putting forward good arguments, so that's cool.

I think some of us are finding it problematic in practice, but we
don't seem to be correcting it.

Chandler did some corrections, most of them welcome, but the most
important thing hasn't been even discussed: who and how are we
choosing the committee. This makes a lot of difference as to how the
CoC will be interpreted.
