Agreed, we are agreeing violently.  The only thing that should be
needed for the ABI is the DPL and the Debian Project Secretary.
Nothing else should be necessary.  

For *sure* we should not be requiring the SPI board to read the 14
pages of the constitution plus any potential Debian GR's, plus all of
the flamewars on the debian mailing lists about how to interpret the
whole mess.
