No problem. I've got a watch on the page, and will visit whenever
there's a change then. ;-)

I understood what you meant, no problem there. The ambiguity is how
the decision is taken about which body they vote on... Especially as
throwing their vote in on one body or the other could maybe weight the
election in one direction or another, and change the result. My
suggestion was that it would be good to lay down unambiguous rules for
this...

OK, I get the idea. Perhaps a separate, short paragraph explaining
that might be good? I could draft one tomorrow and submit it in a
standalone edit that will be easy to identify and roll back/modify if
it doesn't quite say what you want...?

I guess this is the point that, IMVHO, might be in most need of an
unequivocal procedure, as it could give rise to controversial
situations...

HTH.
