I can't propose one, since there are people that want one and other
that want the other. I am asking for a ruling by the packaging 

As for the Guideline change procedure, maybe this is useful in some 
cases, but what I ask for is a precise question for an existing point 
in guideline which is now wrong (use of the tetex- prefix), I don't
think that bureaucracy is neeed (in that case, it is different for
more complex guidelines).
