I would gladly vote an option that says: "technically, we trust what the
TC says; politically, we are concerned about some of our upstreams'
choices". A technical endorsement need not also be a political one.

I would like to keep the technical and political issues as distinct as
possible, though. I am not interested in spending time evaluating each
option to form a technical opinion on what the best choice would be, and
I'm extremely happy that the TC are doing that for me.

I do have personal opinions on some of the upstreams' choices, but I
believe that they should not get in the way of a technical decision.

A constructive thing that we may do as a project to address the
political side of the matter, is to add to our technical decision a list
of things that we wish our upstreams would do to make all our lives
easier in the future.
