You and your cohorts are not adequately explaining this:

What is the difference between this document and the content of the
GNU licenses (and numerous other materials that speak to user freedoms),
GNU Coding Standards and the GNU Kind Communication Guidelines?

If someone endorses the document, what from the above are they
rejecting, if anything?

    Additionally, we think it can be a first step towards formalizing
    a transparent and collective governance of the GNU Project.

How so? What sentences in the the document speak to governance?

If your goal is to replace the governance, then why doen't your
website say that, and have documents that address themselves to
specific proposals regarding governance?

Document your proposed org chart, detailing who is to be responsible
foir what, and the flow of decision making and so on.

Instead of some half-assed indirection through some social contract

If you want transparency, start by being transparent.

    This initiative is not supported by Richard Stallman.

Why would anyone support an unnecessary initiative?
