[s-d] Re: [auto] Wonko submits p321

Wonko has submitted a new Motion, p321.:

I like the idea; I just have some nitpicky nits to pick. They're
pretty much all minor details.

It seems redundant and unneeded to say that only the rules can make a
Guardianship be claimed. You can only do anything that a Game Object
lets you. And, if we wanted to make claiming one, say, an activated
ability on a particular Guardianship, then this might prevent that
from working.

Why limit it to proposals? I'd just not specify a means in the rules,
and we can confer it via proposal if needed. And if we really need to,
we can confer it via tweak or something else instead.

I'd word the first part as "Guardships have {{0: Cease holding
this.}}" or something like that, keeping with my making everything
into objects with abilities. But that's just me, and this works just

But I'd suggest a paragraph break between the way to leave voluntarily
and Expelling, just to make the difference clearer. Also, you may want
to exclude Vatted or Under-a-rock players from your majority
