The approval of any resolution takes place with the approval of a draft 
as committee draft (or with the approval of a Committee Specification, 
because there may be multiple committee drafts, and a resolution my be 
revised). For that reason, it is possible to propose a competing 
solution even when an item has been applied. Sure, this may mean some 
more work for the TC editor. But I don't expect that this situation will 
happen frequently. And if it happens, I'm also not sure if a TC member 
that wishes to make a counter proposal really notices a proposal in 
question early enough to create a counter proposal within 48 hours.

On the other hand, tracking when proposals have been added to an JIRA 
item, and when the 48 hours have been passed is some overhead, and makes 
the process more complex. But the intention behind using JIRA is to 
simplify tracking of items and to make the tracking more transparent. 
The intention is not to create a JIRA based resolution approval process. 
  In so far, I would recommend that we use JIRA with as little 
additional process details as possible unless we really find that these 
are required while using JIRA in practice.
