Exactly. Also, it's too much overhead on Members. Asking them to
vote for big one-time things, like approving the bylaws, is fine. But
asking everyone to participate in new member approvals would be going
overboard. Even if you just vote "+0" (meaning "I'm here for quorum
purposes, but I don't know enough to be for or against") it's still an
effort to follow the thread and send the mail.

The new proposal is designed to keep our current processes as much as
possible (we already know those work), and to ensure that the burden
on the Board is as light as possible too.
