In that case, I'd still do this in phases (for such extensive changes):

1) semi-official reading - intended to shake out any issues.
2) review by chapter committees, including working through any changes  
(which may include such things as adding rationales, as was  
recommended with the const proposal).
3) the formal reading, done as described below, but with a summary of  
the chapter committees
4) voting as usual.
