At the present time, that's a separate Formal Objection.  We don't run 
preference polls for technical decisions.

My hope would be that you would actually consider the results from the 
poll before deciding whether or not you wanted to pursue the second 
objection.  In any case, should a preference poll result in a Decision 
to pursue the REC-track for this document, you will be consulted as to 
whether or not you want to pursue the second Formal Objection.
