What I see wrong in this process is that the original author

right order of events in these situations:
Author writes hacky article
RC patrol tags it as crap
Author sees it tagged, sighs with indignation, removes tag, keeps
Current process doesn't allow for that
however - once afd tag is
added, it's supposed to stay on until all the randoms get a chance
to vote on the article in its unfinished state. Even if you fix up
the article, most people don't go back and update their votes.
Even worse, if the vote is to delete, people will point to that as
a reason not to re-create a completed article later.

When I fix an article, I tell the people who have voted delete, if most of
the votes are in favour of delete. Most people change their vote. I am yet
to be convinced that AfD is particularly toxic given that any possible
process will mean that articles that people have worked will end up being
deleted and will get upset.
Having said that, the proposed deletion system is working well.
