I see one more comment before I log off for the day (I'm still in Geneva):

I can see several of the larger delegations being able to mark an approval (or disapproval) for a lot of those 900 issues and then not give a general vote.

Andy would then list that as abstain even though such a country might have approved (or disappovred) hundreds of those issues.

In the numbers that I reported, I have only called a vote an "abstain" if that is what the delegation marked on its ballot as the "default" vote on any proposed dispositions as to which it did not indicate a specific vote.
