[rpd] Objections should not require amendments

Hello Owen,

I strongly object to your submission. If you want a policy process to
improve with the interest of the community at heart, i strongly feel that
there should be some mid point where those objecting and those proposing
can have a middle point  that can improve and polish a proposal.

If there is a valid point of objection and no rough concensus of the PDP,
then we can move on to the next good thing.

However, it will be a volountary process for the person objecting to
continue to object or volunteer to make suggessions that could improve the
proposal of a policy.

I see no reason why a policy proposal should be abandoned if it has it's
merit and is still undergoing refinement based on suggestions from the
community and a rough concensus was formed by the co-chairs.
