I've certainly seen both happen, both within the IETF and
elsewhere.  But this working group is focused on identifying
problems with IETF structures and processes, and it seems to
me that the issues that both of you are raising have to do
with decision-making and dispute resolution, two areas where
I believe we've got some really serious problems.  Does
anyone feel like proposing some specific text for the draft?
