The problem as I see it is someone making a decision on his

stated that numerous times. Walter has a tendency to throw gas
on the fire by ignoring much of the feedback and not spending
time to understand the points others are making when he does
respond. I really think you should have to convince *someone
else* that your proposal is reasonable.
In principle, at least, this is why we have two "language
maintainers," Walter and Atila (previously, Walter and Andrei).
There's a big difference between being part of a three-person
committee discussing a proposal by Walter and working together
with Walter to make a decision on his own proposal. It's
certainly doesn't pass the smell test.
