I have concluded two things.

1. Most people have completely failed to understand the meaning of "adoption" in the IETF WG context. I and at least one co-author will be submitting a draft about that to the gendispatch WG soon.

2. When I hear a choir singing, it is the same as hearing one voice.

My personal decision at this point is to delete all messages about CRH adoption unread, except for the message we will soon receive from the WG Chairs stating the rough consensus of the adoption call, which ends on 2020-05-29. I do feel sympathy for the Chairs who must read and evaluate everything.
