Indeed, that may be his intention.

The ARIN AC does have the power to substantially revise or even 
abandon policy proposals (in fact, they're elected predominantly 
to perform that particular actions in the process of managing 
policy proposals through the Policy Development Process).  

The community may petition against such revisions or abandonment;
a petition is specifically against an ARIN AC action and not the
process for introduction of additional policy proposals.
