Yes, this, exactly. It is pro forma. It will be applied as if it had been ratified, and it will take many court actions filed piecemeal to obstruct it at all, presuming the courts would be amenable to interfere with the "political question". That (and standing) seems to be the courts' escape hatch when they don't want to be forced to rule on issues with which they are politically sympathetic. Not good. Best to avoid it altogether.
