If this passes, I guess I’m going to count characters that appear in the proposal body, but not formatting or newline characters, because it’s the easiest way to do it.

To get an idea of what numbers are like, tihs proposal would be 193 characters long by that count.

Actually, 189 – I didn’t initially realise that my computer counts the indentation at the start of the blockquote as four characters.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but could this proposal be circumvented through clever use of external links?

Yes, correct.

280 characters seems incredibly limiting

against Both too limiting and not limiting enough: we’d instantly see workarounds that said to enact the text from wiki pages or comments instead.

against I agree with Kevan on this one.
