Just an aside, I've always liked this particular set of gender-
neutral pronouns (which is why I chose to use them for the
Oceania Constitution rather than the awkward ones Eric proposed),
but are they well-enough established here to use them without
explanation? If not, could ExI or the list admins perhaps put
some specific mention of them in the mail list description for
newcomers, along with other commonly-used terms here that might
require explanation?

If no such document exists, I'd be happy to create it from
suggestions sent to me about what to include.
