I would like to voice a qualified "I object" to this rejection.

I would like to see some discussion on this, even though I comprehend 
the reasons given below for the rejection and acknowledge that they 
are valid.  My motivation for speaking up is to see if there might be 
a way that the spirit of the proposal can be pushed forward in ARIN 
even if the particular proposal has mechanics that are problematic.

At this point, I don't have a specific recommendation, just wanted to 
say that there might be a reason to reconsider this, perhaps in 
another form.

Sarcasm doesn't scale.
