"Taking action" is also not always solved by a GR. In the GFDL case, it's
pretty obvious because we "just" need to move doc into non-free, but if the
decision involves many more changes (like having to extract firmware from
the kernel and put them in non-free), the GR will not make that happen by

Although I think you're right that we should try to provide guidance, at
least when someone decide to work on something he knows that the project
acknowledges that this is the right thing to do.

And for me polls could give some guidance... since they're trying to
provide a realistic representation of opinions within the project.
