Reasoning: There is no current R&U entry to allow Coord Approval for NPCs without taking PC control away from Council. In some upcoming changes I'd like to make to my holdings, a Vote/Approval entry would be immensely useful. At the request of Councilors, this has been made a request for a new category.
