In the last meeting in Chicago, it was pointed out the only pending
issue is the "strength of the mitigations". 3 choices were listed,
people picked the choices ( Careful not to use the "vote" since you
don't seem to like it :-),
So I would think the next step is to pick on whichever choice comes up
as popular and move on. I for one don't see anything wrong with that
approach.

Atleast I am missing as to what would constitute a "rough consensus" ?
