    Yes. Any changes to the *current* constitution must be approved by the AGM, 
    and I didn't mean to imply any different.
    However, I should like things to stay that way, hence I'm seconding Andrew's 
    opinion that the MB should not be given the power *by the AGM* to 
    unilaterally change the constitution in the future :^) I don't know whether 
    Scots law allows the membership to explicitly vote itself out of the loop 
    like that; German law (irrelevantly to the matter at hand) doesn't.
    Again, I am sure that the current changes have been proposed with only the 
    best of intentions.
