I'd also add that sometimes it seems like a good idea to make sure that
an opinion which has been voiced but not yet proposed is there so you
can demonstrate that the project really doesn't want it and you can cite
this next time it's raised rather than have the possible ambiguity. Note
that I don't think that's a good reason to call a vote, but to propose
an amendment... maybe.
