Just to be clearer, a Review is a vote on one precise set of Documents.
The Membership should be able to read the reviews on that set *at any
time* without interference of extra documents. If you send your "shadow
charter" to the Membership, it will influence forthcoming reviews that
could say "I had comments but this is addressed by the Shadow Charter".

This is CLEARLY wrong and bad:

1. it decreases the number of reviews sharing same negative opinion

2. it adds confusion about the document being reviewed; is it
   the original one or the shadow charter?

3. it does not follow the Process

Again, I firmly disagree with your proposal here, in particular when
there are formal objections. Sending an extra document during the Review
changes the condition of the Review. I will appeal (section 7.2) if
that happens, sorry.
