That's precisely the point. CFJs should only be there to settle uncertainties and disputes. Any changes anyone wants *should* have to be proosed. Anything that has the force of law has the potential to rewrite the rules, bootstrapping itself up to have enough precedence (assuming, again, no unmodifiable rules exists). Yes, you can put safeguards around CFJs, as you have attempted, but I'm entirely unconvinced of their reliability. I greatly prefer not having the problem to work around in the first place.

I'm especially concerned about this because, while proosals can change anything, they take a majority to do so. CFJs only require 2 people. Again, you can try and put up fences around this, but I've already thought of at least one way of circumventing your judicial kickbacks rule.
