To be honest, at this time I have a hard time figuring out what Roy 
might object to... to date we have made no decision to NOT publish a 
normative author view; in fact we have given every indication that we 
were going to and have simply failed to do so.

At the present time, we have (ordinary) objections to proceeding with 
this publication, and this has the effect of undoing the consensus under 
which we closed issue 59.  This could be treated as new information and 
if we did so we could proceed with calls for proposals and the like. 
This will lead to a decision that can be the basis for a Formal 
Objection.  The way I figure it, we might get one either way, but at 
least if we do restart the Decision Process on this issue we will have 
captured what the proposals and objections are.
