...but this isn't really a vote. There are two weeks of open comment left on this document. You don't have to say "yes" or "no", and you certainly don't have to agree completely with either FDA or Major Stubblebine (which can't possibly be a real name). You can write up your own concerns and send them to the FDA.
Looking at the guidlelines, it doesn't seem like they're going to change anything much anyway. I agree with yy2bggggs -- I can see how losing access to all those chemicals you listed could be a real blow, but I can't see that this draft guidance document is going to take them away. It seems to do nothing but clarify the existing rule that vitamin pills are classed as "dietary supplements" and regulated as such.
