Thank you, Adrian. Also, interesting... one of those (separating GNAP/OAuth2)
wasn't the one that I thought you were going to formally object to. I'm glad I
asked. More below...

Just want to clarify the meaning of "dissent" per the W3C Process for everyone.

"Dissent" doesn't mean, "I responded negatively to the proposal (e.g., -1,
-0.5, -0.1)". You can do that w/o raising a formal objection. "Dissent" means
that "at least one person in the negative group is registering a formal
objection". That is, at least one person is saying: "Absolutely not, no way,
this is such a horrible thing that I'm going to stand in the way of the group
doing this, even though almost everyone else wants to do it."

What you wrote above, Adrian, seemed to indicate that all of those people were
"dissenting", and I'm listed in that list... and I wasn't dissenting... I was
just -0.5 on the proposal, but I wasn't going to stand in the way of the group
if they wanted to go ahead and do it.

Here is the appropriate section in the W3C Process:

https://www.w3.org/2020/Process-20200915/#managing-dissent

... and the definition of "dissent":

https://www.w3.org/2020/Process-20200915/#def-Dissent

In any case, thanks for clarifying, Adrian.
