Guess what faciliated this former WG's area director to write this up ...
(and you can also wonder what would have happened if this was already an
RFCat the time of WG closure)

Subject: RFC 3929 on Alternative Decision Making Processes for
Consensus-Blocked Decisions in the IETF
A new Request for Comments is now available in online RFC libraries.
Title: Alternative Decision Making Processes
for Consensus-Blocked Decisions in the IETF
Author(s): T. Hardie
Date: October 2004
I-D Tag: draft-hardie-alt-consensus-02.txt
This document proposes an experimental set of alternative
decision-making processes for use in IETF working groups. There
are a small number of cases in IETF working groups in which the
group has come to consensus that a particular decision must be made
but cannot agree on the decision itself. This document describes
alternative mechanisms for reaching a decision in those cases. This
is not meant to provide an exhaustive list, but to provide a known set
of tools that can be used when needed.
This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.
It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. Discussion and
suggestions for improvement are requested. Distribution of this memo
