Even if not acted on, the vote still has the advantage that it specifies
a proper process. We do not need any heated discussions next time and
noone can claim they did not know something like this would happen with
their mail. And if someone complains they cannot quote some publically
or use in some scientific paper they can be told they just need to

I might be too much looking at Debian from the inside, but I never
considered it to have any effect without volunteers willing to do so.
