Other people do, but that's fine.

A vote for NO CHANGE is a vote for no change, for the status quo, for
limiting choices for conditional selection expresssions to what is
currently available -- such as 'C and a or b', among others.  Anyone
who thinks that 'C then a or b' (for instance, and my favorite), etc,
is less readable should indeed vote for NO CHANGE.
