What do you propose to do about the rule that changes to tools/ or
bindings/ require 1×+1 and 1×+0? It would be odd if changes to tools/
required more votes than changes to core.
I think that section as it stands (before your change) is pretty hard to
follow: it jumps back and forth between different topics. I might take
a shot at clarifying it (without semantic changes), if that won't
conflict with patches you have in flight.
