It means that it doesn't make a lot of sense to handcuff
the SC out of the gate on a supposition that they will do
'something bad' to the PC. 

Anyhow, it's a window dressing handcuffing. Looks like anyone can be
removed with a 5 to 7 vote of the SC. You've all read the revised 
Charter, top to bottom? Kind of makes 6.2.1 ceremonial. It should
be removed based on that alone.
