Well, if stuff like spells just needed a simple yes or
no from a Responsible Person, that'd be something we
wouldn't have to run through the proposal process,
even if the RP was Dave.  We could just let things
queue up and be taken care of on an as-available

And if that means things in the queue sit there for a
while?  The R&D process is a bitch, isn't it?

You forget.  The admin wants to depose the admin. 
It'd wind up being a race...
