Heh it’s pretty simple - we are appealing the fact that consensus was declared while issues remain entirely unaddressed - and we cannot appeal consensus without pointing to the content and issues that have remain unaddressed (of which there are many of them - as will become plain when the full appeal document comes out)

Compliments of the season gentlemen and ladies,
I am a bit confused at the issues raised by Owen. I thought the appeal Andrew is leading concerns the 'rough concensus' granted to the policy and not the content of the policy itself. Most recent comments are talking about content of the policy which I did not see as part of appeal. Please, Andrew clarify the house. Are you appealing the process of concensus of the policy or contents of the policy or both?

With all due respect, Ali of Comoros, the policy proposal has a number of serious
flaws which are harmful to the Internet and harmful to real world operational
businesses going forward today. The current proposal has done little to address
these issues as the core idea itself is fundamentally flawed.
I’m not calling anyone clueless, but I am calling the proposal a triumph of
misinformation and/or misunderstanding of the fundamentals of internet operations
and a clear and deliberate effort to obfuscate the genuine mathematics of
the present IPv4 situation.
Andrew is exactly right about who the beneficiaries of this proposal would
be (operators who don’t understand the mathematics of current operational
reality who wish to begin operations at a later date hoping there will still
be space available to do so) regardless of whether that defined class represents
anyone here or not.
