You are welcome, and even encouraged, to have a discussion.  The normal 
life cycle for a bug is that it will get a response and that response 
can be escalated.  You can also use this mailing list or other venues to 
have that discussion.

I won't speak for my co-chairs, but until you can identify a clear 
problem with this change, I will not support the revert request.  By 
that I mean this change itself, not with your perception of how the 
process ought to operate.

Feel free to cite this change if you wish to advocate that the process 
by changed; but the reverse is not true: until the process is changed it 
is a misuse of the revert procedure to request a change in anticipation 
of change to the Decision Policy that hasn't happened yet.
