There are enough arguments already without that uncertainty. What does
it mean if someone vetoes a GR? That just leads to anarchy. Decisions
get made, some you agree with, some you don't. Some of the ones you
disagree with can be accommodated and development moves on. If a
binding decision is finally made, whether that be by a GR or a
delegated team, there is no point allowing people to perpetuate the
arguments long afterwards. There is enough scope for that already
without making it formal.
