I'm a bit confused by this result.  The PDP suggests that the AC may
take any action it likes at the end of last call, and a vote of support
seems reasonable, but this action feels like a non-action.  There was
fairly clear consensus on this proposal at the last public policy
meeting, and the AC did move it promptly to last call status.

I will also note that section 4.4 of the PDP states: "Within 30 days
of the end of last call the Advisory Council determines consensus for
each draft policy by reviewing last call comments, revisiting its

Can someone from the AC identify some specific reasons for not moving
this proposal forward to the Board?  The summary message didn't
indicate any specific reason besides a lack of votes within the AC.
