Earlier forms of central government gatherings were gatherings of State Delegates. These functions became a gathering of the the Union of States. That seems important recognizing that it was the State Delegates in Convention that ratified the Constitution. We no longer have Delegates of the States gathering in the Congress. As authors of the Constitution, it seems that the States have a direct interest in the original intent; and of the conditional requirement as "and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the senate." In other words, doesn't this requirement prevent the 17th Amendment sense 'suffrage' breaks down to representation?
