Looking at the discussion, there are currently approximately 105 users
under general support, 167 users under general oppose, and 34 users under
partial support (contributions only). The few other sections have a
negligible amount of activity.

There's already discussion on the talk page about how to close what will
inevitably be a very long and contentious discussion. If we avoid treating
this RFC as a vote, there's possibly hope for a reasonable compromise.
