It is unclear to me why you are gating this on Ian in any way.  The bugs 
that were cited[2] were created well past the Oct 1 cut-off[3].  Heck, 
none of them have aged past the 30 day window that we normally ask that 
editors respond (and at the present time, there are 84[4] that exceed 
this window across all of the specs that we track).  Furthermore, any 
change that Ian makes at this point that meets with significant pushback 
will be reverted[5].

Entrance to last call is not the last opportunity for people to raise 
bugs or to take issue with the proposed resolution.  Far from it: we are 
prepared to have plenty of both.

That being said: if you feel that a poll would help, all I ask is that 
you simply draft the poll and if there is wide support for the poll (and 
every indication I can see at this point is that this will not be a 
problem), it will be published.  I'll go further and suggest that the 
poll itself be drafted on the wiki.  You might even find that the 
exercise of drafting the poll itself resolves some of the issues.
