Tab describes my question in a much less verbose and confusing way.

So if I do object to Shelley's proposals, and the reason for this is
that I want the positive aspects described by the "Keep elements"
change proposal, is it ok to state so? I.e. the change proposal
doesn't actually formulate any objections, just states positive
effects of keeping them.

It sounds like this would be ok (or even encouraged?)

What about if someone else already have objected for the same reason?

It sounds like this is not ok?
