I think we need more clarity.
When there hasn't been discussion on a particular topic and years of ongoing development, all of which uses one approach, I tend to figure that makes it an unspoking consensus. I'm not saying we shouldn't question that when it makes sense to, we certainly should, but I'm not sure it makes sense to ask "why didn't you attempt to get consensus on this thing we've all been doing for years?"
