It’s the opposite case that xep1 is concerned with. A Council member might decide not to give feedback on standards@, knowing that they can give such feedback when voting, and such when they’re not on Council their not-yet-voiced comments might fail to be heard.

I suppose the compromise here would be for the outgoing Council to confirm they’ve no more feedback, and then I’ll rescind my -1 on that basis.
