Personally, I'm surprised that the the thing in question is something that 
even needs much discussion, and further I don't think people advocating 
sticking with a subset of ASCII are necessarily the fussier side in this

It's called incremental engineering.  I'd rather get a subset of possible 
improvements in smaller digestible chunks than none at all.

I believe that way we'd get more folks' opinions voiced and counted which is 
good, but would also practically be left without the work the FPC does when 
working with drafts after they're submitted and before they're voted on which 
is a bigger drawback than using polls would be good for.
