You are actually replying to FOUR)
This seems to be "ask someone to join in the rotation of tasks",
rather than a full-blown delegation of work. That's an option. I don't
pretend to have correctly worded the action of FOUR)

You are actually replying to point ONE, more precisely, "how to modify
it" (the CoC).
There are many opinions. I think an amount of time best described by
some aleph can be spent discussing the details, but I bet people are
ok with "use VLC's or whichever, then vote for improvement". You are
proposing an improvement.

The point here is, several people seem to want things to move here
irrespective of ONE, so a vote seems (to me) the natural step forward.
So, either someone acts towards the action, and it may happen, or
clearly, nothing will happen.

I'm resting my opinion that we are putting the cart before the horse,
but I recognize the need from people for action, so I'm ready to vote
on that point, irrespective of ONE. If it happens.

Best regards,
