Yes, we do have abstentions, basically everything that is neither a "yes"
nor a "no" is an abstention. I'd prefer to not count them as opposing, as
they usually make comments like "I don't care for voting" or "it doesn't
matter to me", why should those count against a proposal (like it is now)?
You chose your words cleverly, because I agree, they are also
"non-supporting", but still, you can't see them as "objecting" neither.
