I don't understand the point of this review thread.
I know I've been hostile to this proposal, but beyond the
object-level problems (which I won't repeat), there seems to be a
problem of process here.
Reviewers have given feedback. Walter has, as you yourself noted,
declared that feedback was invalid and already covered by the
existing proposal; as such, the proposal is being posted again
with no content change.
Like, I get that it isn't your job to agree or disagree with
Walter on an object level; but on a process level, something
clearly isn't working, and it feels like you should intervene.
Either by putting your foot down and asking Walter make changes
(like, any changes at all); by having some sort of mediator role
between Walter and reviewers, maybe by organizing a chat or
something; or by fast-tracking the proposal all the way and
skipping the final review.
Because right now, I have to agree with Exil from last thread:
I'm saying this with all the respect I have for you, but this is
a charade. You're asking for feedback that we know for a fact
Walter will ignore, because he has ignored all feedback given so
