I don't think analogies are helpful here. But if it makes you happy: if you
drive a car off the road, you have to do some more offroad driving to get
back on the road. Turns out two wrongs *do* make a right, after all.

It wasn't intended as a compromise - it's an observation about what I think
is right. I'm not suggesting that the draft period be extended
indefinitely, only that the situation be dealt with fairly. I don't accept
that this undermines the process.
