In the face-to-face (Suber) nomic, you're required to make a meta-
agreement right off the bat on how to cast a vote.  I've been in games
that decided show of hands, around the table aye/nay, putting go stones 
into a jar, etc.  That single meta-decision, in all cases I've been in,
affected the rest of the gameplay more than any actual proposal.
