I agree that minimum support is present, but before proceeding, I simply 
want to ensure that there at least one person disagrees with each 
option.  So what I would like to ask is that if there is anybody who 
disagrees with any of the following, please say so, and indicate why. 
Indicating why is not optional.  The reason need not be something others 
will agree with (obviously), but must not be frivolous.

If it turns out that a poll is necessary, I'm concerned that a poll with 
three options could end up with a plurality.  Given the input I have 
seen, I would prefer two separate questions: up or down on publishing 
Ian's draft at this time, and up or down on publishing Manu's draft at 
this time.  Since non-publishing is not an option, voting down on both 
will be treated as an abstain and not be counted further.  Of the 
remaining votes, if 50% or more vote for either draft that draft will be 
published.  People will be allowed to vote for both drafts.

If anybody thinks that that approach is not fair and appropriate, I will 
ask them to say so at this time, and explain why.
