I think you're right.  Rule 23 defines the ballot as those proposals that were recognized after the start of the prior voting period.  So that would include proposals made during the prior nweek that weren't part of the prior ballot.  Which means you'd get six this nweek, and three every nweek thereafter.

In an only loosely related question, can one make a proposal that's specifically not for the current nweek's ballot?  Could I, say, make three proposals for nweek 6 this nweek, three for nweek 6 next nweek, and three during nweek 6, and have a total of nine proposals on nweek 6's ballot?

No, proposals carry their amendability with them, according to Rule 19.  Therefore, amending a proposal is a game action.

Well, the Administrator left rescinded proposals in the proposal list, along with their serial numbers.  But consider that you can totally replace the text (and, I suppose, title) of a proposal, which in effect would make it a totally different proposal, yet not be an additional one.
