This is a hypothetical that will never happen.

It might. Musk may prefer to keep retail investors in the company, but it's not entirely up to him. The SEC and whatever entities are providing the funding for the EBO also have a say in it. Musk might not be afraid of complicated, but the SEC might not permit a private company to have small, retail investors participating through an outside vehicle - and whatever funding sources are taking the company private might not want to deal either with those complications or the SEC on the matter.

But if somehow such a situation were to come up, I believe my support would be irrelevant. It would be decided by the big shareholders.

But would you? Is that something you would be in favor of?
