If there is significant opposition in the IETF, it does not
count. If there is significant opposition on this mailing list, it
will probably make a difference. BTW, the RSOC is supposed to
monitor policy matters.
The problem with the current process is that nobody knows how it will
work given that it is new. I don't have an opinion about how it
should work or whether it will work.
