It's a perfectly sensible thing to say here: from a purely practical
point of view this *could* happen and all the proposal says here is that
that isn't really on. Instead it says that people need to tell people
why they don't want something to go ahead - discuss things rather than
passively blocking them. That seems like a good starting point for
dealing with the conflicts that are likely to occur if this happens both
here and in other areas.
