Separate counter proposals for the other two change proposals would also 
be acceptable.

The requirement is for each proposal (whether it is currently embodied 
in the draft spec or not) to fully document the rationale and impacts 
for the relevant design decisions involved.

The only requirement that is relaxed for "null" change proposals is the 
need to specify a detailed set of edit instructions.
