Can one of the co-chairs please explain to me -- in simple terms -- the 
Objection/Minority procedure in the Charter as referred to by Eberhard.

I understand from Eberhard's statement that a Minority Statement is one 
part (probably the most important) of an objection, which may only be 
filed by a Member of the WG -- is that correct??
