Governance discussion - referendum ballot mechanism

@1proof I am very intrigued by this idea. I don’t have too much to add, as I agree with the model as it is. I will rather point out a few of the things that I do like about this:

  1. It allows for an appropriate amount of time to consider, research, understand, and act prior to/during the approved event.
  2. It prevents unnecessary procrastination on a situation that may need/warrant resolution. Once the event is scheduled to take place, it will happen.

Both of these are very important points to me, personally.

Other than that, I think it may be beneficial to further discuss/list possible applications for this ballot type, as they would need to be implemented. You provided hard forks and elections as the primary examples, does anyone else have ideas for other applications?
