When business is about to be conducted in a manner inconsistent with the rules, may an aware chair choose to say nothing, and construe the failure of a point of order to be raised as the equivalent of general consent or, if not, indicate that while the business is inconsistent with "the rules", if there is no objection, s/he will allow it or, if not, provided the chair does identify, to the assembly, the rule that interferes with the proposed handling (or consideration, at all) of the business, may the chair then propose that if there is no objection, s/he will allow it? or, even without asking for or hearing objection, is the chair required to actually establish to call for the votes in favor of and against the suspension?
