[EM] Trees by Proxy

In the discussion of use of proxies for FAs and more formal and  
decision making legislative and other processes support the idea of  
making clear definitions and separating different areas of discussion  
as needed. I don't believe there would be one single method and  
formal procedures that would be best for all environments. (This  
applies also to many other discussions on this mailing list on the  
relative merits of different voting methods and discussions on "which  
one is best".) To me it seems obvious that FAs and legislative  
processes need different parameters, the expected behaviour of voters/ 
members is different etc. Often concrete examples of the intended  
environment help me in understanding what cases the discussed  
theoretical concept are expected to cover. Proxies can be used in  
many different ways, as this stream of discussion proves.
