A WG decision about an Issue can be made in several ways as per the Decision
Policy.  See the Escalation Process at

For example, a WG decision can be made after a survey is taken and the results
evaluated by the WG Chairs.  See "6. Poll or Vote " of the Escalation Process.

In addition, a WG decision can be made by "amicable resolution" if no one
objects to a Call for Consensus for a single change proposal. See "0. Amicable
Resolution" of the Escation Process.

All of these WG decisions should be FINAL and subject only to reconsideration
if the Issue is re-opened with "new information" as per the W3C Process.  Some
Working Group members appear to think that these WG Decision can simply be
reconsidered by saying that they missed the Call for Consensus or were not
paying attention.  

The Decision Policy should clearly state that these WG Decisions are final and
will only be reconsidered in the face of "new information" as per the W3C
