I think it respects both the letter and intent.

My rationale is that the private "vote" isn't a vote on the appointment,
it's a vote to figure out whether the future appointment vote will have
consensus or not.

If people feel strongly that the vote should be public, one compromise
is to allow nominees to the CTTE to choose to make their names public
and force a public vote, with the default being the current private
consensus process.
