Do you mean entrench the views about reasonable behaviour held by the
majority of Developers ?  The whole purpose of this exercise is to
give effect to the views about reasonable behaviour held by the
majority of Developers.

It's not entrenched because the DPL and/or the Developers can fire the
committee or individual members at will.

the SC thinks they're being an arsehole no-one else is going to know.
