While scrutiny and debate around new proposals are mostly a good thing (when done in good faith), I think it would be more productive to have more people create more proposals. Healthy competition is how we will get even more out of less (or rather, much more out of more as price goes up :) ).
I have refrained from joining the debates myself, as I would rather take a step back and work on a process we can apply to jointly define the needs we have and thus what an optimal allocation of the fund will look like. We're still early in all of this and I expect many iterations and improvements to happen, probably through a few short term inefficiencies and mistakes. But that's ok.
