Maybe they should, but that doesn't mean that they will. It's a lot easier to drop an email to the person that you agree with, than to jump into a heated discussion. And maybe a simple agreement doesn't need to be read by the whole list.

For the record, I think that there's a middle ground. I understand
that people don't want an explicit timetable, and that the Gimp
development shouldn't be driven by deadlines. On the other hand,
if there was indeed a general agreement about the timing of the
next release, the original email very effectively pointed out the
implications of that choice.

(And I don't think that this added much to the discussion.)
