Misrepresentation is a risk also for "majority views": minutes are 
always partial but they're supposed to explain or briefly highlight how 
the body came to some conclusion. Individual members should also be able 
to submit a few lines of explanation summarizing their view, if they 
want (again, I don't know if some of them actually wants, but they 
should definitely be allowed to).

Don't use HTTPS! Unless the editing is still hectic (I doubt so), we 
could just immediately move those on Meta, which is their final 
destination anyway.
