All good questions.  I propose that we do not require unanimous consent, but
that we do require a quorum.  We could also just list the board members who
have contributed to the response. I'd take no response as a NOOP, and
objections ought to be carefully considered - we should try to reach a
consensus on substantive matters (as opposed to wordsmithing).
