I politely disagree.
Why not come up with a short list of key objections to the IANA draft 3
If/when a "consensus document" comes out, compare the list against the
new draft, and celebrate where the concerns have been addressed.
But don't sit on your hands until then! We have no assurance that a
"consensus document" will emerge, or when that would happen. (We don't
even have, to my knowledge, confirmation that the IANA and NSI are
aiming at a "consensus document.")

He says, "Well, please just tell me your #1 concern."
And you reply, "I can't even rank the problems, they're all so major.
They're all #1."
At this point, if Ira Magaziner were me, he'd stop listening.
