Yes.  The two half-baked proposals don't contain near enough detail,
and represent decisions along multiple axes.  (Moreover, neither
proposal represents the end of even a strain of the discussion.)  I
also believe that almost nobody has a complete grasp of what the
issues are, as misunderstandings still abounded on the most recent
discussion.  Moreover, about half the editors didn't even participate
seriously in the (most important aspects of the) discussion (including
you), and they'll need to be if we want to resolve this in a way that
doesn't fracture us even further.

Also, it's not true that the discussion hasn't moved.  I've had a
number of private email exchanges and phone conversations since
November.  I've been working on a write-up for the Wiki presenting the
various controversial issues, which I intend to post in the next
couple of days.
