Not That I Have Clear Convictions about Term Limits

CM Sam Coleman has a resolution that looks like it would effectively permit term-limited district seat members to run for a consecutive at-Large term, thus avoiding the legal problems and ethical questions that Charlie Tygard caused last election (remember "Re-Elect Charlie"?). I think there are strong arguments for not having term limits, but does Coleman's resolution not seem like self-serving legalization (rather than closing) of the term-limit loop hole?

UPDATE: Resolution deferred indefinitely with no explanation.
