He is petitioning the AC's failure to advance a draft policy worded
exactly as the one that appears in his petition.

I think his underlying point is that if the AC has the authority to
substantially revise a policy on its own and then immediately advance
that to last call, then he should be able to petition any decision by
the AC to not revise the policy the way he wants it revised.

Of course, now we'll have to debate what "action of the Advisory
Council" means.  Some will argue that it doesn't include "failure to
take an action".
