Ian, I encourage you to read Maciej's note[1] carefully, specifically:

If you fail to produce a diff as instructed, we will likely proceed with 
the only diff provided[2] that does meet this criteria.

Improvements that meet with consensus are fine.  An example would be 
changing the name of the method[3].  Maciej's instincts are that 
replacing wording which does not specify a particular negative number 
with a specific negative number could very well meet with consensus.  I 
concur.

But at this point if you wish to reopen the issue and discuss 
alternatives over there isn't consensus; and wish to do so based on 
objections which were not provided during the call for change proposals 
or in response to the survey, the way to do that is via new information 
and a new change proposal[4].   But first, we need to have this decision 
applied.
