My take is that -1 votes on technical issues (vetoes) should (a) only be
given when the voter has important technical issue(s) to raise; (b) be
expressed as conditional: "My vote is -1 until/unless the following issue(s)
are resolved"; and (c) those issues should generally arise, and be
addressed, long before the need for a formal vote.

Does anyone disagree?  If so, under what circumstances?
