I appreciate the work you're putting into the proposals process.
However, I won't vote on this, or practically any proposal, without
seeing what is actually being proposed (as opposed to the general
concept, which is often quite clear). I see a long conversation on
that page, but nothing else. Nothing technical, nothing specific.

On the page for each proposal, please make sure that the proposal is
clearly stated. Is this applied to a node, a way, an area etc? Is it
junction=, junction_ref= or what? It's even worse if I read the
caveats that people have put on their existing votes...

(and on this one, i'd rather see numbers and names in a separate
space, rather than backslash, semi colon or colon deliniated as the
various comments are intermingalling. But I won't vote either way when
I can't see what I'm voting for.)
