Let's change Econsensus to make proposals come out of discussions and be tracked historically, rather than being separate entities.
Currently we have discussions and proposals as separate kinds of the same object in Econsensus. Is there any benefit to allowing proposals to be a separate entity? Doing it the way Loomio has modelled it feels more like the actual consensus process, and means that historical proposals get tracked so the thread doesn't get lost.
So we would move to a system where we had discussions with proposals as sub-elements, and the archive would be for discussions that had gone flat.
I think that this might remove a lot of use cases for people editing things once they've been written, which might make things a bit easier for us too. Dunno about this.
We'd have to change the email interface so that Proposals couldn't be spawned on their own.

Oops! I managed to create a proposal that was already closed. Oh and now I have a character limit. I wonder if I can see these outcomes later somewhere central?

What is this? a discussion or a proposal?
