Sorry for the rhetorical excesses :-)  Of course not!

The problem is that there are some people who feel that the process was
violated.
That set a bad tone, IMHO.  The TAG message didn't come across (to me, and
judging from my private correspondence this morning, to lots of other
people) as an invitation to feedback and discussion, but a pronoucement ex
cathedra.  

Some humble pie consumption by all parties would probably help get the
technical issues here back on the table.  I'll take back the "legislating
the value of pi" slur and the reference to "foolish consistency" aphorism
...   how about if the TAG humbly states that its unanimous opinion was
designed to foster discussion rather than end it?
