[COMMENTS:] This is basically set up so that the Players need not use up Proposals on introducing new Players. The complicated wording is necessary to allow the Speaker to do things like choose a Player Number, assign a reasonable score, or assign any other attributes Players may acquire in the future. Mention should also be made of things like numbers of proposals submitted in a given Nomic week, etetera. The Players can always shoot this down for a good reason.
