I noticed at ARIN40, that "shall" had more votes, and zero "no" votes, as compared to "should".

Just wondering, what happens/will happen next?

6. Confirming Community Support for Recommended Draft Policies

The Advisory Council confirms community support for Recommended Draft Policies, and this is done by polling community support for the policy change during a Public Policy Consultation.

The AC should carefully weigh the community support shown for a Recommended Draft Policy.  Absence of clear community support is a strong indication that policy abandonment should be considered. A low level of overall support without opposition for a Recommended Draft Policy suggests further discussion of the merits of the policy change or abandonment. A clear split in the community support suggests that the AC should revise the Recommended Draft Policy to accommodate the concerns raised or further explain its consideration of the matter.

A Recommended Draft Policy that has demonstrated clear support (and only relatively low opposition for well-understood reasons) may be advanced to Last Call by the AC within 60 days of its Public Policy Consultation.
If the AC sends a Recommended Draft Policy different than the Recommended Draft Policy presented during the Public Policy Consultation, then the Advisory Council will provide a detailed explanation for all changes to the text and these specific changes must have been discussed during the community consultation.

So, the ARIN AC meets and reviews the discussion (including the polls for community support)
and considers whether to send either version of the policy to last call, explaining any/all changes
made to the final text based on the discussion that occurred during the ARIN40 public policy

This generally occurs promptly after the ARIN meeting, so you can expect shortly several
announcements about their consideration of each draft policy and the policy status changes
that occur as a result.
