This proposal currently stands as not having consensus.
Reading the whole thread again, it strikes me that the problem to be addressed was NOT confusion between expenditure and disbursement, but rather around the traceability language
Pelle, Mark and myself have signaled support for removing the traceability/publishing part from the definitions. This would seem to solve the problem. Nobody has opposed this idea.
While I agree in principle with Mark's point about using generally-accepted definitions, I'm also inclined to limit changes as much as possible.
The new definitions could therefore be:
Disbursement: Outgoing funds that are placed at the disposal of a recipient government or organisation, or funds transferred between two separately reported activities.
Expenditure: Outgoing funds that are spent on goods and services for the activity.
