Consensus process is an interesting decision system: following its 
rules, such as executing a veto that some incarnations of the consensus 
system operates with, may lead other participants to feel that the 
process has been undermined or circumvented.

On last text subgroup meeting, it was accepted that I could stand aside 
or reserve myself w.r.t. title/alt - this is also a feature of 
consensus. However, if we agree about one proposal, then that is better 
and the "true" consensus.

For the moment, I'll look my own CP to see were I can near myself to 
your CP. As I understand it, it is important to you that a @title alone 
should never be considered conforming. This is also, btw, what I said 
in my poll vote.
