The draft says three ADs, 10:2 could pass. Was this alternative
procedure ever used ?
Rarely if ever, but we have come close several times and found
a compromis instead.
I'm a bit perplexed that there's no timeout
for a pending DISCUSS. Nothing rush, a year or so, enough time to
discuss issues, and eventually agree to disagree.
That is, I think, intentional. A firm timeout would make it
too easy to stop looking for a consensus solution.
