Not to mention the overhead in setting up a popular vote. Remember the
foundation elections? It was necessary, but I hope that wouldn't happen
with every technical issue that pops up... It's the same reason why we
don't live in a true democracy: if everyone voted on everything all the
time, (a) nothing would ever get done and/or (b) people would be too
wrapped up in voting to do anything else.

An RFP procedure adds some overhead, yeah, but oh well. This sort of
process is necessary in any large project, free or commercial.
