Michael has but one role on this list, and that is Absolute Monarch.
His Majesty's coronation oath merely requires that he "willing to fairly,
responsively, and judiciously administer the registration process".
The rest of the list members (always excepting the Official Doug) are
merely his Privy Council, whose opinions he is well entitled to ignore.
That said, his is a despotism tempered by dynamite, as in _Utopia Ltd._;
there is always an appeal to the IESG.

In substance, however, I agree with you: these tags have been sufficiently
justified by the standards applied to other such orthographic reforms.
