[Nomic02] three new proposals

I propose the following three new rules:

"Players may change the details of the map by unanimous consent."
(Essentially, now that the map is part of the gamestate, I don't think it's 
necessary to have to pass a new rule every time we want to change the map. 
With the rules that currently exist, plus this new rule, changing the map 
could be done using the same mechanism as changing the rules, but the list 
of rules wouldn't have to become cluttered with the details of the map.)

"A specified subset of players may be deemed to have reached unanimous 
consent on an issue in the same manner as specified in Rule 10, except that 
only players in the specified subset are counted for determining the 
outcome of the proposal."
(This is just a support rule for the rule below. I think the wording is 
fairly airtight, but it's possible I've missed a loophole somewhere.)

"Any player who is found to have intentionally deceived another player 
about the current state of the game may be issued a demerit by unanimous 
consent of the other players."
(Given that at the moment there's no official record of the state of the 
game, there's nothing preventing players from lying about it, and it'd be 
nice if we didn't all have to be paranoid and keep our own copies of 
everything. It's implicit in this rule that players should attempt to be 
truthful, but I didn't want to make that part of the rule, since that would 
make it possible to break it. This seems the best way.)
