Just to be clear. The document Sam linked was a very old version of the Process document. Even in that very old version of the document it is not clear that objections need to be noted in the document itself though, as can be read here:

http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Process/Process-19991111/activities.html#WGArchiveMinorityViews

Anyway, the current Process document is clear on this:
