Possibly, but even if unanimity can’t be achieved, I feel strongly that any decision coming from the GUIDO/Cabal/Council should be give as a single party.  E.g. if Alice and Bob +1 PEP 801 and Carol -1’s it, I don’t think any purpose is served by breaking that out into individual votes.  I would hope that the council members support each other and the body’s decision even if it doesn’t go an individual’s way.
