I have suggested that kind of staff support myself; I do not recall  
any objection against that.  As far as I recall, there were no  
substantive suggestions from council members on changing the  
consensus process.

While I don't recall an explicit discussion of this, I was under the 
impression that the concept of a ccSO is generally accepted in the  
council (and beyond).

See above.  Of course, my recollection may be faulty - I didn't  
bother to check this.  

In fact, it is also irrelevant whether or not explicit consensus has 
been reached on these questions during the conference calls:  
Philip's job is not only to summarize consensus which has been  
achieved, but also to lead the conuncil in achieving consensus.  One 
tool on that way is to draft possible recommendations which can then 
be discussed by their merit.  The fact that there have been no  
objections on the council list so far may indicate that council  
members agree with the consensus formulated by Philip.

Philip should, in particular, not be attacked _because_ he is  
circulating these drafts - even when you don't agree with their  
content, they are an important tool in order to move discussion  
forward, and focus arguments.
