I assume you mean technically weakest, not just the least
enthusiastic?  I.e., the chairs will go with whichever option they

Objection along the same lines?  I assume there's no point in multiple
people filing basically similar Formal Objections.  Or are you only
talking about the actual authors of the Change Proposals here?
