No, we will not support any such ballot without Forum members who feel
there is a need for it, and who can provide demonstration, evidence, and
discussion as to why the conforming solution proposed 8 months ago is not

Without that, it seems purely an attempt to circumvent standards, whether
for financial benefit, competitive advantage, or intellectual laziness.
These are all strong words, I'm fully aware, but the situation surrounding
this - the intentional and ongoing violations, the lack of compliance
monitoring, and the lack of response over many months to a proposal that
would have avoided this mess, is deeply disturbing, and thus my ability to
ascribe good faith to the proponents is, unfortunately, severely exhausted.
