You: "Keep the status quo, all done" Also you: "Let's wait for something better"
Now is better than never. Although never is often better than *right* now.
Neither of which says "the distant and uncertain future of an unwritten proposal is better than either now or never". If you JUST said "keep the status quo, all done", that is a reasonable and consistent position (which I disagree with, but I fully respect). But you then taint your claims with this statement that the reason for keeping the status quo is not that the status quo is better, but that there is a hypothetical idea that might be even better. That's not "now is better than never". That's not "never is better than right now" either.
I think it's time for me to drop this entire topic for a while. This list is getting more and more noisy and I'm going to stop contributing to that.
