Hi, thanks for bringing this up, I'd kind of forgotten about it :)

I vote B A C

I think it might be good to clarify {IF this is the intention (I think
it should be)} that "act on objections" is not limited to the 5-day
period, if someone disagrees with you after 7 days instead (for some
reason or other), there's no hint that you're "free to ignore" at that

Worth mentioning here is that when I wrote it I did intentionally word
"act on objections" very diffusely, so that it could potentially mean
anything from "friendly discussion" to "flamewar on debian-devel", just
to point out that objections should NOT be ignored (is that evident? Is
that good?).
