They would either be using the powers of the CTTE in 6.1.2, 6.1.1, or
My point is that there's no difference in the constitution between
developers /making/ a decision that requires CTTE powers and
/overriding/ a decision which requires CTTE powers. [If that was clear
previously, I apologize in advance for becoming more emphatic.]
I suppose there could be some draft texts which did not actually require
the CTTE powers (as a position statement, say), but without language to
the contrary in the CTTE's decision, the majority needed is irrelevant
to whether the CTTE has vacated its decision or not.

That's your argument?
B: It IS true.
