I don't see what's so bad about including "by posting intent to do so".
We have several ways of changing game state: by unanimous agreement, by
sectional consent, by individual action, by automatic occurrence. Making
it clear in each case which this is seems a good idea to me.

(I'd support a proposal that defined "action" as "something that requires
posting intent", however.)
