The problem the whole concept of  Democracy is subjective , but that is a discussion for another thread.

For now, this proposal is in second draft, and the thorny part is the ratio ....  1:3 (which Andrew and I proposed) or 1:5 (which the community thinks is realistic).  Are you advocating 1:1 or 1:0.5?

If we must go by a population count i would go for the 1:3 ratio as a standard and only move to 1:5 after some proof of existing or planned network with some level of implementation time line..

The policy could then also cater somehow to an easy transition from 1:3 to 1:5 if the original resource has been utilized.

 i think that way we strike a sustainable balance and ensure Photabtop++.

i.e phase one will be "photabtop"  and phase two will be "photabtop++"
