Hi Ninja,

thanks for the feedback.

Yes: "no text" (with appropriate argument) is a sound change proposal to 
resolve an issue.

What is important that "no text" is documented as one alternative change 
proposal within the wiki.
If there is only one change proposal (e.g. an issue only having the "no 
text" resultion), the chairs may interpret this as this single proposal 
that has consensus.
However, if there is some text and "no text" as an alternative, we need 
to actually jointly decide among those options.
