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
