Not in general. In this case a number of developers feel (rightly or
wrongly) that they were misled by the previous ballot, and wanted
another chance to influence Debian policy.

I think that you can reasonably expect this to happen again next
time the developers feel they are misled.

I don't think we need to debate whether or not the ballot was misleading
yet again.
