I have to disagree, as a non native this kind of language is, sorry for my
openenss, confusing the heck out of me. I'd rather paint it black or white
for clarity sake. In my mind there just is no such thing as unanimous
support for parts of a recommendation. We either agree with it or not. In
the case of working groups it is very clear that we do not agree. So why
don't we just strike it from the list of agreed

seems simpler and more understandable. 

while my tortured sense of logic was fine with the other, i see why this is
more understandable especially since we then go and give our qualification.

Sounds a little confusing to me. At the same time, note that in my response
to Philip just sent a couple minutes ago, I suggested "Qualified Support". I
think it may be an improvement to say "we unanimously support a
recommendation with qualifications".
