I disagree that Debian's voting system should do anything about this.
For most of the things that Debian tends to vote on, preferring no
decision yet especially when there is not a clear winner seems like a
reasonable course of action.
Part of this is my personal bias. I also recognize that in some
situations, making a decision is important.
