I'd say it is a consensus of those who prioritize participating in this
discussion enough to do so, consented to by the rest of the project.
If we get it sufficiently wrong people in the broader community will let
us know.

Yes, because of privilege some people can prioritize more things

I think giving things more time makes sense.  Looking at where we are
now, let's try to get a summary of the round 2 discussion out within
October.  Let's try to have the maintainer branch/upstream discussions
in November or December, with the understanding that we may need to
spread things out more given holidays.

What would be more useful than this criticism  is concrete advice on how
I can shorten them while still accomplishing my goals.
