In Rule 1.5 (Resolution of Proposals), replace “Proposals the High-Programmer has Voted to VETO are considered vetoed.” with:-
Proposals the High-Programmer has Voted to VETO are considered vetoed, and such a Vote cannot be changed.
And replace “If the High-Programmerâ€™s most recent Vote is VETO, and that EVC includes the word “Procedural”” with:-
If the High-Programmer has voted to VETO a proposal and that Vote’s comment includes the word “Procedural”
It’s bit odd to see Lilomar changing his mind and rescinding a veto, and it looks like some (but possibly not all) of the current ruleset wording supports that. But self-kills explicitly can’t be changed (“If a Citizen Votes against their own Proposal, that Vote may not be changed.”), and I’d say vetoes should be the same. They’re both one-shot “this proposal will now definitely fail”, which means we can stop voting and get on with reproposing or doing something else. If the Emperor vetoes a contentious proposal, we can stop discussing it, rather than continuing to debate and vote in case he’s won over before it gets processed.
