There is a difference between "permitted unless specifically
disallowed" and "permitted unless regulated". The rules are clear on
how consultations can become pondered, on who is the Emergency
Coordinator, etc. Therefore any changes to a consultation or the
Emergency Coordinator are regulated and not permitted unless clearly
defined in the rules. However, the rules are not clear on Refresh
Proposals. They indicate that Refresh Proposals can be
submitted/discussed, but they do not indicate any means for doing so.
Therefore any action involving Refresh Proposals is unregulated. Hence
why I think your attempt to retract them all might be valid. I suggest
you retract that attempt and allow this process to continue so as not
to delay or prevent the emergency process.
