I think that's a great idea, tracking revisions of proposed motions and
recording of the results/votes is not so great at this point. I would
still prefer to use the ML and the meeting to *discuss* the motion, but
tracking wording changes and approvals should be made easier.

A few questions:
* Chair can use APRV once the vote is over to indicate YES wins... how
to indicate that the vote is over and NO won ? Abandon the review ?
* How do we handle proxies ? Giving temporary +2 to a non-TC member
sounds like a bit of pain
