I will write these examples as a person making a proposal to the
public which might trigger a veto.

Move the ownership into a private corporation (SUA LLC)  with a board
of directors.

Use the domain name now with a site license of CCSA, or CCSANC.


If you wish to preserve a veto then it is also important to be very
clear about the path you are 'requiring' for the future.  Documenting
this is probably more important than preserving a veto as only then
will be sure you are having a discussion about positive action.
