I'm hoping this applies only to issues where we can't reach rough  
consensus without a formal vote. I recommend that we take a vote only  
if someone objects strongly enough on some point that they actually  
ask for a vote. Most things we can probably work out informally.  
Although for larger issues, like "should we adopt HTML5", it might be  
good to have a formal vote just to clearly record the agreement.
