Given that adoption is not a voting system, it should not matter if people
are new. What should matter is the arguments they use a against adoption.

I personally have no opinion on the draft. However I do note that,
for example, having a default router in DHCPv6 has been blocked over the
years because that functionality is already provided by RA. Even 
though there is operator demand for the option and it can provide features
that are hard to realize with RAs.

So I can imagine that some people argue against duplicated efforts on a
similar basis.
