Or a series of proposals, separated so that they may be approved or
disapproved on an individual (or dependant-group) basis. This would allow
us to present some more controversial changes without jeapordising the
work of the committee. I think the rationale should be included with the
changes, including the comments from dissenters.

I'd suggest an output from the committee of a series of modifications to
the by-laws listed with the following information, something like:

Modification #5: article 10 paragraph 2:

New text:
[new text]

Old text:
[old text]

[other changes that can only exist if this change is adopted]

Reasons pro:

Reasons con (if any):

On a ballot it would look something like that plus "accept this change?

We can generate an interim report with our identification of problems, and
our final report with the proposed solutions in a format like that above.
I think a preambled resolution is unnecessary.
