I like this aspect of the proposal and think it's worthy of proposal on
its own. Continuity is very important, and unlike LCA, the LA council
doesn't have any event similar to Ghosts to perform a handover each
round, it's sudden death, and the more council members change, the more
dramatic the handover.
