Concensus requires much more than any single person...Starting at page xx, PBP lists over two dozen other people
My remark was meant as a linguistic one, but I can see it can be interpreted in multiple ways.
It is, however, incorrect to imply that those guidelines aren't the result of extensive consultation, collaboration, and collective experience.
I never meant to imply that. My apologies if it did appear that way.
Still, I do wonder if defaulting to /msx is concensus or the opinion of a few. I've certainly never encountered many people expressing this opinion before PBP came out.
