Yes, it's a bit hard.  OTOH, the poll was nonsense because it
conflated multiple undesirable options, and I ignored it as such.

In any case, the IETF does not make decisions by polling.  

What we are looking for is rough consensus and running code,
and it is quite clear that we don't have either one at the moment.
We should not be making any decisions -- we should be in bake-off
mode.
