Is the community not capable of expressing this during the consensus
call following formal presentation? You would substitute your judgment
for theirs?

I'm deeply disturbed by this post. My understanding is that the AC's
mission is to help the community craft the best possible policy which
expresses its will and to help the process move smoothly. Killing a
well supported proposal this early obstructs the community's role in
the policy process.
