The draft you describe starts with 16% opposition on the list,
degrades to 26% opposition by the time it reaches the meeting and
exhibits 33% opposition during the AC's subsequent vote. That's a
compelling pattern all right: whatever the adjustments or issues were,
they moved the draft steadily away from consensus.
