Works for me.

If this is clear (that the IPR commitments are to the last thing someone had an exclusion opportunity on, which is something I have always pushed for) then we’re good to go with a thumping big warning to the WG that editorial changes mean just that, and if they inadvertently (or deliberately) entangle IPR, the IPR owner, EVEN IF a member of the WG, is not under any licensing obligation.

Having a 60-day ‘if you think this is non-editorial, speak up’ is pointless.  One may as well have a 60-day exclusion opp. and be done.

A 60-day delay for publishing an edited document looks long and heavy (though it’s not really).

So, I would be OK with ‘The decision that a revision is purely editorial must be made by the WG without dissent (i.e. abstention or failing to indicate is OK, but a single voice saying “oh not it isn’t” is enough to force CR publication and exclusion opps.)"
