I agree. We do need a final decision body.

I was thinking it might help if the TC process helped the people
involved in the issue had a better chance of feeling like their
positions were understood and that hopefully increases the chance they
believe the final decision was fair.

But mostly I was hoping that sharing & discussing conflict resolution
techniques would help us avoid needing to send issues to the TC.
