Timed out 1 vote to 3. Failed by Kevan.

Add the rule “References” to Votable Matters with the text

When a Votable Matter refers to another Votable Matter by its exact title, it is understood that it means the most recent Votable Matter created before the referring Votable Matter was submitted.

Although ah, this needs to say “it means the most recent Votable Matter with that name created before the referring Votable Matter was submitted”, otherwise it’ll always point to the previous Votable Matter in the queue, irrespective of title.
