There is indeed such a mechanism. Decision (E)D.4. reserves to the council
the ability to change a method's name whenever the council "considers it
necessary". I'm confident that if some appropriate committee did the leg
work of contacting the relevant bands and soliciting their opinions, and
presenting a collection of proposed name changes matching the bands'
choices to next year's meeting, with the committee's recommendation that
such changes be made, the council would happily rubber stamp them. Rather a
shame that it takes a year to get it done, but if it didn't move slowly we
wouldn't call it the Central Council, would we?
