More important than numbers is whether or not there were 
material objections.  I believe that there were several material 

I was not party to the co-chairs' decision, but I did inform them 
that, in my opinion, there was not sufficient consensus to pass 
this proposal.  I suggest that the authors of the proposal should 
work with some of the objectors to prepare a revised proposal.

I was astonished when the perfect consensus we had at the public 
meeting (not a single objection) changed so suddenly after the 
meeting, but people do have the right to change their mind.
