Right. Any objection will be treated much as if it were a last call
comment, and a case-by-case decision made.
I think that rather than a culture of ignoring objections or taking
a straight vote, the consensus-based culture means every objection
must be understood and, if appropriate, dealt with.
It's not really a case of lobbying, it's a case of demonstrating a
clear technical argument, and the earlier in the process that happens,
the easier it is for a working group to address it, usually.
