What I would like to see is to have a proper vote in helios (like
when we vote for board members) first with 'rename/no rename' and if

have something more than 50% of the votes but to make sure we have
more than X of the all electorate voting and (to avoid brainsplit

We must make a clear list of the benefits vs. the threats for the project.
