In my opinion we have no trouble with newbies ruining proposal process
and I see no reason for adding obstacles and verification process and to make
processing vote even more complicated.
I would expect self-filtering to be sufficient.
Only tiny self-selected minority participates in proposal process,
I see no reason to make participation more complicated.
I am certainly not going to include such changes in this proposal and
will not make such proposal.
