Then why should the prop 125 guys listen to anything you have to say?
The prop 125 guys will need to listen to the folks who might be
convinced to join a consensus with the right set of changes. You're a
firmly declared "no" vote. The only knowledge you offer them is a list
arguments to be rebutted.

What's more, should they fail to achieve a consensus on defects in the
proposal rather than the concept, it doesn't close the question... the
matter remains open for the next guy to and try again. And again.

If you're against the concept and want it to go away, help the prop
125 guys build the best proposal possible, and THEN seek consensus
that even the best constructed version of the concept is unacceptable.
And let the best ideas win.
