Good points.  I think some of us messed up the process here, so, let's 
cancel this vote, and start over...

Part of starting over will be to acknowledge and document some off-list 
discussions about this and why they started off-list, and summarize 
these on the dev-list.  Another part of this will be to discuss the 
proposed contribution, how it fits or doesn't with the existing Cas 
Editor, what might be the possibilities for integration, and, in 
general, what the way forward might look like, over the longer term.

Finally, assuming the discussion proceeds to a point where it makes some 
sense to have a vote, we will re-do a vote.
