In some sense yes, but it's the job of the owner/shepherd to follow
the various threads, and include debate about the proposal as open
issues.  This would all lead to one of these conclusions:

- we've reached consensus and now need just implement the proposal
- we've reached an impasse and the BDFL will rule by decree
- the proposal is hopeless flawed and the idea should be dropped
- we need more information or research
- we're defering the proposal to a future release
