Here you touch on the difference between our two viewpoints.

I am not asking for _votes_ when I want to hear from the developers.
I am asking for _logical_argument_. Not "I like this", but "this is
(or is not) a good idea because", followed by a list of consequences.
We argue this way until the group comes to a consensus, or until there
is no more logical argument forthcoming and I make a judgement based on
the argument I have already heard.
