I'm not sure what precisely you want me to remove from the
documentation process.  Key elements:

- Documents have owners, and owners have some responsibility.  I.e.,
  please don't throw a draft at the committee and expect others to
  take over.

- Objections should come with a reasoning.  That's really just good
  manners and common sense.  Objections without reasoning are
  useless when the aim is to produce a good document.

- There is a choice between a quick "no objection" process (when
  chair doesn't expect contention) and a more time-consuming vote
  (when chair expects some contention) for the adoption of a

- There are some basic timelines.

Which of these should be removed, in your opinion?

You are reading too much into this.  (Which may mean that I should
revise the language.)

What's meant by that particular text is that a draft from staff
should come with some brief note like "xyz asked me to prepare
this", or "here's what I propose".  That's really just basic
transparency, and, by the way, something which already works quite
nicely with the latest drafting done by Denise.
